Looks like he's holding a specimen in his hand as well, yes?
I'd love to know of the disposition of his collection as well.
I like you, Mike, would give a portion of my anatomy for one of Robert
meteorite samples as well. If you or anyone has a clue please keep me
in the loop as well PLEASE!
After Kevin whetted my appetite when announcing he was selling his set
of Burnham's Celestial Handbook ( I missed out on the ones he was selling),
I went directly to eBay and purchased a hardcover set in very good
condition to add to my library. Don't know why I hadn't purchased a set
long, long ago.
As much as I love astronomy and books, it just defies me why I didn't
have Robert's work in my collection till now.
