Ray,

I know what you mean. I ran into a similar situation. When the first 1971 Raleigh Catalogue in FIVE YEARS (a FULL catalogue, not the abbreviated 4-page brochure) showed up on ebay 2 months ago. I bid $87.50 AND LOST THE BIDDING WAR.

http://ebay.com/<blah>

So, I bribed the owner to send me photographs of the catalogue (unfortunately, he did not own a scanner). You might try that technique if you lose again ...

P.S. I've been out of the country, but plan to convert the RAW canon files to JPEGs and post them to http://www.bulgier.net in about a month. Some of them need contrast enhancements and rotations, etc.
