I've been holding onto to these for years and now its time to part with them. I have volumes 1-8 and they are all in excellent condition. Barely ever read and kept in a climate controlled/smoke free area for years.

Asking $1500 total OBO. I just want these to go to a good home. Thanks, -Drew

Thanks. Let's see what other responses you get. Are the books hard- or soft-bound ?

I guess I had given up on owning any more of these books. My gratitude goes to Mr Mahankind. Now to make a new bookshelf or bookstand. My new camera will come in handy, if scanning proves unwieldy; maybe a permanent setup, to hold a book relatively flat for photography. I've used spring clamps of various kinds, and weights, either on the drafting board or on the couch under the window, depending on the phase of the moon . . .

Very Happy

I've scanned out of my hardbound set; that these are soft cover might actually make scanning easier for you ... and us ... Very Happy

Oh, yeah. I'm not going to get much done on this house model I'm doing -- at home. Heh.

"that these are soft cover might actually make scanning easier" Maybe -- maybe not. Sometimes the binding on a soft-bound volume is firmer than that of a signature-sewn hard-back. But I'll prevail. This little camera seems to be able to see around corners.

The 11 3/4" height of the Monograph page just fits on my scanner bed. I wonder if there's a pre-treatment of a soft-bound book, to even the stress on the spine when the book is spread open repeatedly . . .

Buttermilk, maybe. Smile

I have never spread-eagled my soft-cover set of "Selected Houses," but I think they may not hold up well, although they're better than the old "Global Interiors," #9 & 10.

Now all you need are volumes 9 through 12.

My Selected Houses 6 is just beginning to separate, in a couple of spots. A book that's completely come apart into separate sections and loose leaves is my Brooks "The Prairie School," which, according to a note on the first leaf, was bought in Cambridge in 1977. My Dover Wasmuth binding has given up, though major portions are still intact, but separated from the cover. The second copy of "In the Nature of Materials" (1984) is split at the center, otherwise intact.

These are all paper-bound books. I wouldn't deny that my spreading of pages in these books, over time, has contributed to their destruction. But it's clear that the adhesive has completely dried and become friable, in many cases.

9 through 12 are the drawings ? Are these mostly sketch details and views, or are there finished drawings, including construction sheets ?
