Two Old Books Discarded by NLB

Bliss, Dorothy E., Shrimps, Lobsters and Crabs: Their Fascinating Life Story, New Jersey: New Century Publishers, 1982, pp242 inc illustrations.

Gale, Bruce, Musa Hitam: A Political Biography, Malaysia: Eastern Universities Press (M) Sdn Bhd, 1982, pp290 inc b/w photos.

You're looking at two old but readable hardcover books discarded by the National Library Board many years ago. I recall the NLB's first time ever cheap sale of a huge lot of discarded books inside the compound of its Bukit Merah branch library, and I'd bought these two books at a give-away price. The dust-jackets and the pages of these two books are quite nice and neat.
