SCAM ALERT!

I received the following note from a submitter who has a book listed on BOWL: "I have been emailed twice today from someone claiming to have a copy of the book I've requested. At first I thought the offer to supply the book was legitimate. Then with each subsequent email the person's grasp of grammar gets worse. And at no time have they ever directed me to a bookseller's website." As with any transaction, please exercise extreme caution when considering purchasing books from people or vendors you do not know. If something doesn't feel right, trust your instincts. The Books We Own project is not responsible for the outcomes of any transaction brought about by a listing on this site. Unfortunately, if these scam attempts appear to increase, I reserve the right to take down the BOWL page entirely.


You may also want to check one of the following websites to see if your book is for sale (note: listing here does not imply endorsement of the products or services provided by these sites):

Please contact the Books We Own List Editor if you have succeeded in locating a book in order to have your listing removed, or to update an email address or other information in a current listing.

I am looking for: sorry, I should have written it down, and now it's beyond too late, a decade or more too late, but I'll describe it and pray someone knows. it's heavy on the Randolph's of Virginia. a largish but relatively thin (1/2 inch-3/4 inch (?)) book, bright yellow or orange cover...with gilded? title. I've looked for it on GoogleBooks and OpenLibrary.org and did not recognise the ones that came up as it. I could be miss- remembering anything or everything, but I do remember that it had a listing of related Peytons in it. I've looked in a number of Randolph's of VA and Peytons of Virginia books, but maybe it was of a different title and I'm not sure what that might be. I only saw it once, in a private library (an associate's, he's passed since then.). the other Randolph books said little abt contemporary Peytons. I am looking for proof of Valentine Peyton m. to Sarah Randolph
I would like to purchase.
