What did you make of the thing on the hand truck?
BTW, this looks like the same operation that had the lead that got Bob
Rosenbloom his IBM typewriter. I know they bring in pickers and others
to cherry pick the good stuff ahead of these sales from the sale that
Bob's typewrite came from.
I picked up some books at the sale for my collection, and in researching
the person who originally owned the book turned up fresh meat on a book
scout's ABE books site. However I got the good stuff, he got the crap.
I would have liked to have snagged the guy's PhD bound thesis, as it was
related to engineering mathematics, and is cited widely in other
literature. However I got his copies from project Ranger, of which he
was a leading engineer.
BTW, Brendan, I'm in Orange if you are in the area.
