A guidebook is that thing that's probably sitting next to your cell phone.

I don't have the last 3, having moved from the area in late 2000. I do have a Gran though, along with an almost complete set of Eastern Trades as well as all the Swains and Ivan Rezuka's supplement (aka New 5.8s for 5.11 Leaders).

Thanks. My collection is complete.


Time to start saving for a Gran grin


Indeed, no collection is complete without the red hardcover 1964 Gran guidebook.

Just received copy of the Gran. Don't ask "how much?" smile.

Actually, I will! Curious as to what they're going for these days. I bought mine in 96 for $200.

Holy *^#&%$%$@!
Might this be the most expensive modest book published in 1964?

Probably not, although I'm not sure what you mean by "modest book." This site estimates the value of a first ed. of Where The Wild Things Are (1963) at over $10,000. Not too bad for children's book!

Holy *^#&%$%$@ once more. The Gran guide is a modest book, not a huge gilded illuminated fancy art book.
Come to think of it, I have a Williams red book with signatures of the author, Hans Kraus and Fritz Wiessner. What's that going for nowadays. (No use telling me that it's next to worthless, but out of sympathy for me you'll pay me $20 for it.)
