    A shame I have to subscribe to a newsletter to examine your wares. Perhaps I'm missing a link or something?

    I do not see the listing of these duplicates or the respective link, just images of 60 samples.

    When you get in touch with michel auer by e-mail does he then send you a simple list of the 3,600 books or does the list give more information than simply titles?

    It's so easy to get your answer. Send an email to Michel.

    I emailed and he sent a wetransfer link to the full collection, which I haven't had a chance to look at. They are selling the books as a lot for 235,000 euros.

    €65/$73 per book. If they are truly rare/out of print books, that's not bad. I'm sure individual books are priced differently since most wouldn't be buying the entire lot.

    Spending such a figure on a single book is one thing, buying the whole lot is another. How many bookstores specialized in photo books are there worldwide? How many would be interested? Could pre-finance such?

    I'm sure someone like Abebooks could buy the lot and then stick them up on Amazon Marketplace for much higher prices
