42373Re: [bolger] Bought Bolger books!
- Mar 2 7:40 AMNeat. About a year ago I was checking eBay and came
across a set of Bolger books for sale, I believe
30-Odd Boats, Small Boats, Folding Schooner and Boats
with an Open mind. They had just been listed for
auction, with a "buy it now" price in the twenty or
thirty dollar range. I immediately bought them. Five
minutes later I got an e-mail from a very nice lady
admitting that I had purchased the books, but asking
me to set the sale aside. Apparently she had been
cleaning house, bundling up piles of old books and
putting them on eBay. Her husband noticed that his
Bolger books had been swept up in this purge, and was
horrified. She immediately tried to cancel the
auction, but too late, I had already bitten. Of
course, I let her keep the books, but for a few brief
moments I owned all four at a bargain price, at least
in theory. Sam
