I am interested, but on reconsideration, it's probably a little more for me to take on than I should at this time. Last year, I disposed of a 90-year collection to two people who paid me nothing, but they also had to pull them all down from their attic. I immediately had seller's (or giver-awayer's!) remorse, and thought I might want to rebuild a collection. Also, this time I'm looking for copies in as good condition as possible. I live in Barre, Vermont, so it wouldn't be that big of a deal to pick them up in your town, but I probably wouldn't want all of them, and I'm assuming you want to get rid of them all at once. I didn't actually meet the people who got my collection...they were supposedly going to use them to make collages (or something). The idea of somebody spending all that energy, money and time assembling that collection, with it ultimately going to the landfill or recycling center, is kind of sad. But, that's my story. Sorry to have taken up your time!
