"There are countless horrible things happening all over the world and horrible people prospering, but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible." -Auberon Waugh
When I lived in San Diego years ago, a couple of local "yard-salers" purchased several old paintings at an estate sale in Arizona for about $60. Most were not of any real value, but two of them turned out to be by Martin Johnson Heade that later sold for more than a $1 Million combined. I got to handle them (very gently) at the commercial photo lab / studio where I worked, when we made large format transparencies of them for the auction catalog.
Thumbs up on your book, it is excellent. Thank you for getting it printed.
Merilyn: Thank you for buying it! Glad you enjoyed it.
Spiny: It does happen. Just not to me.
This story, and Antiques Roadshow, makes you wonder how many unrecognized treasures end up being thrown out with the trash.
R-man: Unfortunately, whenever I go searching through the trash, all I find is more trash.
