	Books are a major PITA to get here in Barbados because I have to
order them from overseas and then we pay shipping (mucho dinero) duty and
VAT on them.  Used books are a boon to us.  
	Here is a proposal: If you are going to divest yourself of some
photo books, might you let me know which ones?  If I am interested and you
are willing, I could have my NYC bank send you a check as an advance to
cover shipping and you could donate them in this direction, not only for my
library but because I teach photo courses at the local university and
community college.  
	I would suggest surface book rate as I am not in a hurry.  Any

Yes, a very good resource, especially since so cheap. I bought an extra to
(gasp) cut one up with a razor to scan for Powerpoints in my alt class.
There is no way to photograph or scan such a tight, small book with so many
pages, and the works are so beautiful to show on the screen, especially when
talking about that generation of work, Pictorialsim moving into Modernism.

Weston Naef's Collection of Alfred Stieglitz is a great resource, too,
although pix BW. It is right now $4 at abebooks.com...very thick, large

Abebooks.com has been a huge boon for me. Just ordered the bromoil book that
Ed Buffaloe talks about in his bromoil article on Unblinkingeye.com.
Speaking of bromoil, there was a new book last year that is pretty darn
good, too--Derek Watkins Bromoil A Foundation Course.

I've got to start divesting myself of books...luckily I have a wonderful new
library here that loves donations.
