Here are the prices.

Geometry, good condition with student notes inside the cover. This is still in print. $10

American Spoons, paper back, nice condition. $20

Gask, hardback, 1973 reprint. Has had long ago water damage to the back pages. So $5

All plus postage. Let me know and I will weigh them up to get a figure.

Scott, how do we communicate?

The Soeffing and Chicago Metalsmiths would each be $30. The Frink is a very small, hand made pamphlet. It is photocopied, early 1980's state of the art. Frink was a long haul trucker at the time. He spent his free time looking for Indian handle spoons. And he put together this little 43 page tour of his collection. I bought it from him in 1983. It shows xeroxed spoons and gives makers. He was very thourough in tracking things down. Jim Frinck is the type of collector who does things that really last. Plus he is a real nice guy. Would want $20 for this one.
