Hi Everyone!

Tony was kind enough to send me some pictures and
information about his books, so that I could make them available to the
forum without having to worry about the email size limit for pictures.
Here is a link:


(I apologize for the website; it has been a "pipe dream" for
years and I am gradually trying to turn it into something.)


am all for making more information available to the general public; if
there is anything that I can do to help please let me know.

as well and we should probably update both Andrew's list of all titles
that had a Pear's Soap edition and ensure that he has images of all of
the titles (if he wants them).

interested in your books, but as a high school student with more Vernian
enthusiasm than money, I am afraid that I would not be able to make an
acceptable offer for your collection. However, I think that a list of
titles and some pictures would be of interest to other potential buyers
here on the forum. I understand that posting pictures here is difficult
due to the size restrictions, but if you could email them to me
personally I can upload them to a directory on one of my websites and
post a link to it. Please let me know and I would be glad to help. Have
a great day, everyone!
