Hi Jeff,

These two shots make up about 85% of my books and exhibition catalogs.






I see your dust jackets are in much better shape than most of mine. Letís say mine have taken a lot of abuse!

Besides whatís in the pics, I have all the HALIs from Vol. 1 to about Vol. 60; probably most of the ORRs (not including the ones on newsprint, which I used to have, until a fiend who shall remain nameless disposed of them!!! ); and a motley collection of Textile Museum Journals, auction catalogs, and the like.

How about this: I was on vacation in the Carolinas in the south of the USA in July when my cell phone went off. It was my brother reporting from a flea market on Cape Cod in New England. The flea market was shutting down and one dealer had about a hundred oriental rug auction catalogs he hadnít sold. He was leaving for the west coast and didnít want to carry them out there. Did my brother want to take them? My brotherís question was, did I want them? Holy mackerel! So, that set is now in my library as well. Iím usually not that lucky.

Rich

P. S.: This is a fun thread.
