Hard to find Books for sale

I have listed a number of rare or hard to find glass books from my library on EBay. It is time for them to find new homes. Iím at the stage in my career of getting rid of those things that I know others can use. They would be of no value to anyone in my family and would more than likely end up going to Goodwill.

Here are the Ebay listings:

Glass Notes 4 by Henry Halem Item ID: 163695613359

Firing Schedules by Gram Stone Item ID: 163695631758

Advanced Glassblowing Techniques by Ed Schmid Item ID: 163695612230

Recipe Book for Practical Glass Melting by Wilhelm Schmidt
Item ID: 163695611673

Ceramics and Glass: A basic technology by Charles Bray
Item ID: 163695620970

Hot Glass Information Exchange 1st printing
Item ID: 163695732026

The Schmidt is a great resource. I'll be interested to see how High Glassnotes4 goes.

Graham Stone's schedules is a really great resource when you need it.

Why is the Schmidt "local pick-up only"? (Not bidding; just curious.)

Thanks for catching that. It was supposed to be Free Shipping. It has been changed.

Patrick, check your listings. I just took this screen cap a couple of minutes ago.

Rich,
I don't know what to say.... They are all listed as Free Shipping when they come up for me. Except the Recipe Book which is listed as Free Pickup but I can't change it, so it says Free Shipping in the item description.

I get the same results as Patrick. Henry's book is cruising along at $152.50 with the reserve not yet met. . The recipes at $75.00 is still a very good deal.

Looks OK now, except for the Schmidt. My screen cap was from the page that came up when I clicked on "see other items," but it's been corrected.

Glass Notes 3rd edition can still be found for about $60 some places.

The third is simply not comparable to the fourth. Henry pulled out the stops asking various sources to write for the final edition. I'd wager he wishes he had kept a box back to sell slowly on ebay. The 4th continues to command impressive prices and long term is the best buy.

Patrick--
Thank you for pointing out these books for sale. It is sad that you're not making much use of them at this point, but they will really be a valuable resource in other people's libraries.

$150 was all I was willing to bid on Glass Notes, since it would be a spare/shop copy.

I'm currently on top for the Recipes book, and really hope to get it after looking at a copy at John Croucher's color making class at Penland last month.

It isn't that the books are of no value to me. They knowledge they contain has been and still is essential to operating my studio. I'm just on the other side of the curve today. I've got all the equipment I'll need to make the remaining work I want to make. I know how to get from here to there without needing them. I'm getting rid of the things that I no longer need and passing them on to others could use it.

I'm surprised by what people find essential or of value... I know 95% of the people will never make their own color but there's not a lot of information out there. Most won't build equipment so I can see why they may not think Glass Notes is of value. Ed's book is the best visual aid to techniques there was, way before YouTube.

To me the most valuable essential book to every studio is Graham's firing schedules. Every studio at some point is going to need to figure out how to anneal that 4" paperweight or thick casting. How fast do I bring up that batch of big Graal pieces? The money spent to get it wrong just once outweighs the price of a book. I really think it is because most people have never encountered it. It is a huge contribution to the glass world.

Indeed, Graham's book is a real sleeper. It is a life's work.
