Well John those Ideal Series Books were a better
investment than the stock market. If you ever develop
a Bibliphobia (fear of books) or a Hydro-bibliophobia
(fear of books about water subjects) I will
imediately come to come to your aid and get those
scary books away.
But since there is little chance of that happening in
this lifetime those books will stay on your shelves
Is it a sin to covet thee group members books? :o)

- Just to make you feel worse, I looked in my copy of Volume 8 for the price
I paid for it: $14.95! :o) And mine looks like it's in better condition...
I'm afraid I'm probably partly responsible for the high prices the Ideal
books go for nowadays, because of the exposure I've given them on the 'net
with my index and the Atkin catalog. <sigh>
That volume 38 from a library may have been legit. Unfortunately, public
libraries aren't permanent repositories for information for the ages. They
are always getting rid of old books to make way for new ones, even though
the old books may be much better than what's replacing them. :o( That's
something to think about when you consider what to do with your valued
book collection when you're gone. The local public library would probably
just sell most of the books off at their annual book sale, just because
they're old, or because they think boating readers aren't a big audience.
Ebay isn't the only place to find Ideal books, they also turn up through the
online book search sites (I usually just use ABE):

collection of THE RUDDER. Dave Carnell told me about this. it cannot hurt,
if a library has some old books or bound periodicals, to tell the head of
the library that if they are going to discard them you will take them and
make a donation to the library.
