    Andrew BLoody Loomis!

    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

    My. God.

    Cant even describe my joy...

    that piece of crap?
    are you serious?

    ill take it off your hands for £7.00


    seriously, if that IS first edition, in that condition, the book is worth about $300 USD.
    that is the find of the century!
    any idea what printing it is?

    yeah that's my way of showing my feeling outwards. Inside I jealously mumble something about pure luck.

    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!

    Lucky!!

    I'd 'bout give up a nut for a copy of Successful Drawing, it's possibly one of the best books on perspective I've ever seen.

    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.
