Auction Copy Reads (in German)...

"ATTENTION offer only for restoration, as part carrier or for decoration, is not complete, of 32 panels are only 28 tables available, Table No. 1, 10, 21 are missing and panel 31 1/2 is missing, without portfolio, without impact side, panels are partially rubbed on the unprinted border, dusty, some places stained, a few even more polluted, but the images themselves are received properly, the colors are strong and intense, 28 and 1/2 single sheets, state 2 + to 2 = 6 My condition categories are 1 + to 2 -. Please read the complete item description!"

a little over $200 is a steal, even if it is a few plates shy of complete.

Hello Erik,

I just saw this and I am late on bidding on this item, is there another place to find this book, very interested in doing some of these pieces in glass.

Thank you,
John Frankel

I passed on the bid of €165,00 told the seller about John his interest.
Now it is on again for a second time, but now for €840,00!

Are you saying you clicked to buy... then told seller about some guy instead of paying with a big grin on your face and how is 5 times the cost you had it for?
Sure I paint thing for my amusement and then offer them for sale. A brushslinger could whither en die from lack of creativity in this plastic town my horse threw a shoe in. :shock:

I desided with reluctance not to buy it.
You can only spend your money once and I want to go on nice vacations this year.
Besides that the seller sold it in three volumes seperatly, If i would buy them I would want them all three.

It is possible to download a digital copy of the scans that Damon made from the flickr site. The original size downloads are 1440 x 1080, which isn't a bad size....better than nothing. I suppose.

Exactly Larry
I love books and I love first print originals, but sometimes it is just not in my budget.
