Hi All,

A collection of some of the best books on snuff bottles is coming up for auction in California.

http://www.invaluable.com/auction-lot/-1-c-4944867A49?utm_source=inv_kwalert&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=keywordalertlive&utm_term=2

This will interest anyone who wants to establish a really good library of reference books. If you were to buy these NEW, they'd set you back several thousand dollars instead of just a few hundred.

Exactly Pat

When I add up the TOTAL cost of my little library of snuff bottle books and catalogues, it comes to a staggering USD 6,000!   Shocked

Wow !

If  only   this   auction had  come  up sooner  I could  have saved myself a  small fortune

As  I recall, my  copy  of  "New Look"  alone  cost US$200 !(and that  was just the   English version)

Cheers

Peter

PS:  Buy my  data  base for a  mere  US$500  and  you  get all the  books PLUS  save  yourself the  shipping costs  and the  shelf  space !   Grin
