there was almost no response to the quandry I expressed in the original thread concerning where to send it next...
Maybe no one wanted to seem greedy.
I did receive a request via other means of communication to be "first in line", so to speak", so I might just be sending it to the Western US shortly.
(You know who you are ! hee hee hee !)
The delay will be useful, however, as I wanted to find a way to add a sort of protective layer over the cover. As you may have noticed, the front cover especially seemed a bit "dicey" - due no doubt to the age of the book, and the fact that some previous owner had to bend it back pretty good to read the slightly off-center printing on the pages.
Besides the "near-future handling issues", there's also the notion of preserving it after it has completed its travels.
I was pleasantly surprised to discover that a product is made to do just what I wanted to, called - wonder of wonders - book laminating film. Problem is, my first couple attempts to find the stuff have proven fruitless.
Have to stop at a couple more on the morrow after release from the slave pits of work.
