Since an August profile on Good Books in the Woods, owner Jay Rohfritch has put up for sale a series World War I posters, as well as a pictorial history of the Spanish-American War.

All the items are extremely rare and authentic, Rohfritch said, with the WWI posters being offered for between $200 and $800, while the “Harper’s Pictorial History of the War with Spain,” a 32-part series, is going for $650.

Rohfritch said he purchased the Harper’s series from a resident in The Woodlands.

“It’s amazing what people in The Woodlands have in their house,” he said.

Rohfritch also sold a first edition copy of “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” for $1,200, a sale he says is not common.

“Those kinds of books are hard to find, and the customers are hard to find too,” he said. “There aren’t many people who can toss aside $1,200. Those that do use it for Ferraris.”

For 2014, Rohfritch plans to continue his Dead Author Series, a social event where the store invites the public for snacks and drinks to celebrate a famous dead author. Past events have celebrated Ernest Hemingway and Hunter S. Thompson.
