1st Ed, Mint condition bar a library stamp on the inside and knocked corners. Found in a bargain book shop here in good old blighty, for the princely sum of £6.00

Holy shit. Good find dude.
There are 3 sides to every story. Yours, mine and THE TRUTH.
Nice find. It's worth looking through old and tiny weird bookshops for gems like that. I picked up a bunch of handy Osprey Military reference books for half price at my local bookshop - they just seem to accumulate books and never sell them, so the price keeps going down till I buy them
I also got my girlfriend an original copy of Creative Illustration for christmas, but it didn't come with a dust jacket. Great find!
I luckily have all of his books on PDF.
That being said, I would have freaked out had I seen that in a bargain bin. That is absolutely amazing.
That book has a rare form of herpes that can only be cured by me....please send it asap to me NOW! Then and only then may we be able to save its life and get it back into your han....errr yes your hands saffelelely....*jekrwjerl*
Wow! Congrats on that find!
Yes these things can happen. About 10 years ago I found a first edition of Figure Drawing for all it's Worth in the Strand bookstore in New York City ( South Street Seaport ) for 25.00. Inside there's a stamp that stays, From the Library of Don Heck, who I found out was an old school comic artist guy. Guess he used to own it.
I've been hitting bookstores ever since trying to score Creative Illustration, so nice work you lucky bastard!

hrm... sf has a billion used book stores, i should go hit some up. maybe i get lucky.
I was actually going to go to a bookstore tomorrow and see if they have any copies of any Loomis book.
That's a great find though.
