Clever listing method for beat-up books

I just came across this auction titled Haunted House Library 110 Antique books. These are basically worn, non-collectible, vintage books sold for Halloween decoration (I guess the Addams family needs shelf-filler too).

The price seems a little ambitious (and they've been relisted at least once) but they're from a powerseller with 2K+ feedback so they probably know their business.

If I had more space it would be fun to compile theme lots like this. I firmly believe there's a way to squeeze a buck (or a quarter at least) from any book.
