That is a good price for this indispensable reference set. I paid $280 for my set nearly 20 years ago!

I got 2 sets for free. Jimmy Li gave me one set in NYC, and in London in 1995, I was cheeky and asked if I could have a second copy for my other home. My NYC copy in 1993 was autographed by the late Victor Graham with a sweet dedication; and the second in London in 1995, was autographed and inscribed by Jimmy Li (in Portuguese!), Victor Graham, and Hugh Moss.
Best,
Joey

Just purchased this from Amazon for 160. Was looking at this auction but with postage and customs wouldn't be such a good deal for me. Excited about receiving my new book...  Grin

These two volumes cover one of the finest snuff bottle collections of the 20th century, with in-depth commentary from three experts on every type of bottle. OK, the Bloch books arguably cover more, but that is seven volumes as opposed to two.
Congratulations on a most worthwhile purchase!

Dear 'Pookles' (?),

     That is a bargain price for that.
Best,

You are going to love these books.  In fact I have been studying them recently and one is open right now on my sunroom table!  Great buy!  Enjoy!
