I have a first edition (1930) Skelton "Boundaries and Adjacent Properties" published by The Bobbs-Merrill Company to donate to an auction with 100% of the proceeds to go to RPLStoday.

Highest bidder can just go to the "donate" section" and pay Wendell who has more ways to accept payment than I do.

The book is pristine for a 90-year old tome; not brand new, but darn near. (Except somebody printed his name on the inside of the cover. Who? Me?)

The lowest price on Amazon or eBay for this book is $125, so let's see if we can start there.

GREAT book, probably my favorite (my copy has the most "paper clipped" pages on the book shelf).

I’m totally interested in donating $125 if the book is still available. Is the book still available?  Thanks, Nick

@nicholas-labedzki   The book is still available.  I was going to wait until the end of the week to let everyone have a chance at it before calling a winner.

Tomorrow (Friday) is the last day to bid on this book.

Looks like Nicholas is going to get a bargain.

Yep!  Send me an address to send it to, either private message or [email protected]

I may not get around to sending it until next week since I'm sheltering-in-place for a while.

Wendell says to add a note to your donation referring to the book auction.

Thanks
