Just one left to go, but definitely not the maximum allowed.



Also I'm with Peter, Cedric and Carrera in wanting to get a look at that GTS book too if at all possible.

Sorry guys you are going to have to give me a moment. I have had an offer for the book and we are now just going back and forth on price. I will let you know in a few days if it is sold.

Took some pics last night. A bit scary even opening the book, the old dried glue in the binding was creaking and cracking horribly. Don't think the pages have moved in 37 years when this thing was printed :









It is such a strange hodge-podge of drawings / images / prints. And the smell between the pages is pretty awesome.

I got the 933, GTS and GTR parts catalouge in pdf IIRC.

(I bought the original GTS and GTR documents years ago and someone "offered" to make a book, unfortunatly that was the last time a saw them...)

Can offer the documents in the same manner, refinance the purchase so to speak.

EDIT: I do have the original GTS parts catalouge and it is scanned. I also have a contact in the book printing business if any interest. My GTR is complete, but a xerox copy.

I┤m in for the GTR book.

I have no evil intentions. (at least not about this book ) I just have reservations about taking it apart page by page and destroying its originality. Normally you guys would be screaming at me NOT to do it because it would kill the books historical value.

Since the interest here is indeed great enough to go ahead I will start calling around today to try and find someone local to do the work. What would be the preferred format to have it scanned to ? PDF ?

If I can't find anyone local do any of you guys have experience in the book / conservation trade ? This is way out of my scope of personal experience...

That's it then, once I get a price for the work to make sure it doesn't exceed the people saying they are 'in' then I will go ahead and get started !
