I see there is a collection of Wright Books for sale, recently listed on e-bay. A few rare gems in the lot.

I'm hardly an expert, and all these books in one swoop would be nice. Though an interesting assortment, even the starting price for this collection is grossly "optimistic". The average price of +/- $50 each does not appear to make this a deal (even before the first bid!). Many are great reads (especially the "Letters" series" and almost anything Frank had to say) and some of the '60s Horizon books are not too common.



But as far as "essentials", only the editions of the Kelly book and Genius and the Mobocracy (those exquisite Sullivan drawings!) qualify, IMO. , but at $2600 I'd go for Wasmuth....or....
