This is my thought also..with the very deliberate bit of very little description, I think the intention is clear....which is why I would suggest destroying the provenance page. Clearly the unscrupulous among us might keep trying to pass this on down the line as something it's not.

Since we know who has the rest of "The Cupric Text" pages, I'll just get them forwarded to that person and there won't be a problem any more ...

It's only confusing when it comes up for sale :)


I'd STILL destroy the provenance page...if it's going with the rest of the Cupric Text lot, then it's where it belongs, and doesnt need a separate provenance letter.  There have been many, many cases where the original buyer of a lot or item passes away or loses a collection, and I'd hate to see this pop up on ebay again in 5 years as "The MS to American Gothic, as stated in the provenance letter".  Better to solve the problem once and for all.

Is the person owning the Cubric Text a big secret, or is there some reason we aren't mentioning him?

I am under the impression is it: harami2000 / David

ref this from him to me:

From: harami2000---
I still have all of Stephen Marsh's perzines minus those two

That certificate on the current eBay lot needs torn up/burned, in order to help prevent another 5 years+ of confusion, IMHO, and the previous owner said as much with regards to needing that re-titled.
---

I told him I'd send the pages to him if I win, and he responded:

From: harami2000---
Many, many thanks for thinking that way and making the offer.....

... If for some wonderfully generous reason you do feel inclined to place a bid, I'd be more inclined to send you over the remainder of the archive in order to join at least that much back together again.
---

I don't need the stuff, so there is no need for him to send it to me... but if he does, I'll find something to do with it... ie: auction it off at the Con :)

Héhé sorry ... it is why I had (FASA edition) in the text ;)
I'd like to find another copy of the Companion edition since mine is not in good shape but I didn't manage to find one other for the moment  :?

*g* Slightly selective quotes from pers. comm. but, anyhow, fire me over your addy Doug and will see if we can hopefully get some sort of positive result from this multi-year fiasco.
Thanks, again. :)
Just an update, in passing.

Faster, Pussycat's "Or, (to be cynical), he knows full well that this is something different, but is using that letter to try and dupe a buyer. Though I see no reason to assume an ill motive" comment was pretty much on-the-spot but too generous, IMHO.

Following further comms with more clear pointers to what they're actually selling, they've now gone deadly silent and are - as you can see - not updating the description or publishing any comments.
The obvious conclusion is that they're only interested in making a profit and more than happy to snag an ignorant buyer who's unaware of the background.
*
To be honest, my current thought would be "stuff them" and hopefully let that fall to no bid.

Yes; those pages /should/ go with the rest of Stephen's mss. but there are a large number of historical RPG items - particularly mss. - that should never (IMHO) have been split in the first place and a $300+ tag to fix just one of those which is already, thanks to Mike/IO, mostly available as a freebie online is possibly not "best use of limited resources".

(Of course, if you wish to hold me to that "If for some wonderfully generous reason you do feel inclined to place a bid, I'd be more inclined to send you over the remainder of the archive in order to join at least that much back together again" comment, feel free...


Paul; thanks for the attempted explanation, but (so much for biting my tongue)...
The Collector's Trove wrote:The manuscript is actually an installment of his ongoing mini-fanzine, The Cupric Text (a nod to Steve's City of of the Revenaunt campaign), that ran in The Wild Hunt (IIRC).

... where did you get that from?

Cheers,
David.

Consider yourself a real collector? Well you need one of these :D

(Both my boys are serious skaters - the disdain they would show if I bought this does not bear contemplating!)


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

I sent some questions a few days back too but they didn't get answered either and I didn't get added to the bidder exempt list so I am guessing he doesn't want International bidders.

Me, three... There were a few listings I would have been in on...



My questions were unanswered too.  I found it odd, because his BINs, and only the BINs, were listed on ebay.ca along with international postage.



Oh well, at least I saved a bunch of money   :?


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

Did we need: Jade Magi Sewer Crawl

Shoulda been: ".. from Pangreenia to Floratopolis, from mystical Treeonia of spectral Forests to Schruborial dimensions."  - The Forests of Leng

Safe to say that his auctions didn't do as well as they could have because of it.  The HUGO is one I hadn't seen before and would have pushed up a bit and a nice looking Tradervale for $41 is a great price.

Yeah, I should have gone a little more on the Tradervale.  Oh well.
