    For the children's books, could you tell me an approximate reading grade level?

    I figure my czech is probably at a 1st or 2nd grade reading level. Maybe the old "See Dick Run" but in Czech. I'm looking for books at that level.

    Yes, I have some 1st and 2nd grade level books.

    One is by Jurij Tomin and is called Nepiste Tatovi--sorry I cannot do the accents on the letters. It has a lot of dialogue, short chapters, and fairly easy language.

    A children's book by Vaclav Rezac, called, Kluci, Huraza Nim! from 1961 also seems 1st to 2nd grade reading level (short, easy chapters). this book is well-worn.

    Another that might be suitable is a translation of Astrid Lindgren's Kalle Blomquist. In Czech, the book is called Kalle Blomkvist Zasahuje. It has beautiful black and white illustrations. An English translation read side by side would help you understand the Czech.

    A translation of German author Erich Kastner's, called Emil a detektivi is also a nice book. Again, an English translation is available.

    Miep Diekmannova (apparently a translation from the Dutch), called Cluny V Brakkeputu might also be a possibility.

    All the books mentioned were published in the 1960s. They are all in very good condition and have no inscriptions or marks. The Diekmannova and the Lindgrenova are in the best, like new condition.

    I hope this helps.

    Further, I think

    Do you have a website where I could take a look at some of them and prices etc.?

    these books are listed on by title but there are no pictures. Just do a search on their website. I included amazon-assigned codes in my previous posting. These books don't have ISBNs. (I dabble in collecting/selling rare foreign language books but I'm not a professional bookseller).

    Prices would be negotiable. The pricing structure on is somewhat different given the rare book ranking and commissions that takes. If I sell them without the amazon website, I don't have to pay their fees and can offer them at a 30% discount.

    Individually, the Czech books I have listed on amazon. com, depending on condition and antique value, range from $20 to $39. I usually do a bit of research and find out what the books are worth and how much it would cost (including shipping) to buy them overseas, etc.

    If you are seriously interested in one or several of the children's books, we can negotiate a fair price. The shipping fee would be a flat, cost-recovery fee of $5.00 per book (priority mail).

    All the Czech books I have are from a retired professor I know.
