Thanks gentlemen, and Jordan... I appreciate the offer but there are just too many books to haul up there and the majority are not especially valuable. I do have signed copies of several William T. Vollmann books as well as his 7 volume treatise on violence, Rising Up and Rising Down
(not signed). Quite a few signed Harlan Ellison first editions. Several J.G. Ballard books, a couple of which are signed. Quite a few art books including signed copies of nearly every book of Joel-Peter Witkin's photographs. McSweeney's... every issue from 1 to (I think) 16, with the exception of number 5. A couple of signed books by Dave Eggers as well as other McSwy's publications.
I also have an original print of Witkin's Teatro de Morte
as well as the original concept sketches framed with a contact sheet print of Cupid and Centaur
and a pair of Albert Paley's Millenium Candlesticks
, but these items would be better auctioned through Sotheby's or Christie's (though if anyone with lots of money wants them, let me know).
Just too much stuff to list.
And yeah, I'll try to meet up with you and Justine on my way up. I'll get with you on this soon.
