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.

There is no listing, just an advertisement, if you are interested you have to get in touch with the man Michel Auer

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?

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
