I'll pay you $20 for your red Williams. PM me.

He's pulling your leg, gunks. Um, I believe they were a bit more than $20 when we bought them (I have one too) simply because of the signatures.

I've seen Red Williams go for as little as $5. There's a bunch now for under $10.

What it's worth with the signatures I can't say...

I'm just saying, you can buy an unsigned red for $10, in case you're looking to fill out your collection. There are a lot of them out there.

The Blue pops up now and then, I've seen a couple go for under $20 recently.

The Black Trapps was going for about $100 for a while, but it's dropped now that the Grey Trapps is out. Still not cheap, you can find it for under $40. The Nears and Skytop books are easy to find.

I've seen the Gran on sale for over $600, maybe Chessler reduced the price recently as it was there for a couple of years.

Something I've wanted to get my hands on for a while is Rezucha's "Shawangunk Grit," which I understand was his own pamphlet/guidebook concerning the climbs he put up in the Seventies and Eighties.

I sent Ivan a message through mountainproject.com asking about it, and he told me he didn't think he had any copies. He suggested I contact Annie O'Neill, which I thought was amusing. I'd love to buy it or get a copy of it if someone has it lying around. I really enjoyed reading the "new" route descriptions in the Vulgarian Digest recently. Maybe if some enterprising person wanted to scan it, we could ask Ivan if he'd mind.

If anyone is interested in Gunks guides, including Gran, Williams, Rezucha or Swain guides, I have them for sale.

I am selling off a very large collection of guidebooks and would like to find other rock climbing guidebook collectors.

You can reach me at jimmerson@earthlink.net

Thanks.
