I got permission from the manager to send this out. He thought it wd. be a good idea to have me list everything I've got for sale, and to have anyone interested contact me directly. A few of you already have, and the rest of you may email me at esch557 at yahoo.com Anyone interested, I also have photos I can email you individually.
Though I don't want to, if you are interested in only one or two items, please email me. If I get enough people interested in specific books, I'll be able to recoup some of my loss (and I'm at a loss already!!). I hope you like what you see! I also look forward to posting "regular" messages, on WP and his work, in the future for discussion with you. -Eric
