Anyone out there have any copies of Don Smith's guide other than vol. 1 #1 that are for sale? I am interested in purchasing them, especially vol. 1 #2.
AbeBooks has four for sale: Vol 1 #1, Vol 1 #3, Vol 1 #4, and Vol 2 #1. Sorry, no Vol 1 #2.
v1#1 is thru 1974, v1#3 is thru 1988. This one is thru 1978 so it's probably v1#2. I found it on Amazon.
Thanks. you saved the day. I looked just recently on Amazon but didn't see it.
Frequently, you can find one or more of his six issues/guides listed on eBay.
Almost as frequently you can locate them on Bookfinder.com
P.S. Go to the individual dealer site (whether from Amazon or Bookfinder) and continue searching their specific library - they may have more to sell that they haven't listed. Also, if at first you don't succeed, keep searching every few days or weeks - they will eventually pop up.
I have vol.1 #1, vol.1 #2, vol.1 #3 vol.1 #4 & vol.2 #1. Just looking for cheap extra copies. I did not know there was a 6th vol. I assume it's vol.2 #2? What years does this vol. go up to? This one I will have too search for.
Vol. No. Years @ Publication Date

(now for some confusion - on the inside front cover of this last issue he lists the following data:
VOL. I, NO. I...1975.
VOL. I, NO.2...1978.
VOL. I, NO.3...1985. (REVISED) 1988.
VOL. I, NO.4...1992.
VOL. II, NO. I..1996.
even though the copyright dates I cited above are the copyrights shown on the inside of that particular issue...)
Thanks. This was very helpful. I'm missing Vol.1 #3 1888-1985. I always thought it jumped from 1978- 1988. I'll have to find me a copy somewhere.
Typo on Vol II no 1 - should end with the year 1996, not 1992 - sorry...
Yes, I have Volume 1, No. 2. Do you still need it?
No I found an extra copy. I am now only looking for a copy of Vol.1 #3 1888-1985. Thanks.
