Don Stilson Book Metal Ware Corporation NOW AVAILABE
« on: April 04, 2021, 05:15:30 pm »
I am pleased to announce that Don Stilson’s book on empire steam engines is now available for purchase!  I’ve been working on this for some time, and am pleased to have played a small part in being able to offer this resource to the hobby.  I helped facilitate this process but the book is being offered directly by the Stilson family. Please see the information below.

Thank you for your interest!

Well, it is good news and bad news.

Some of us paid significantly more for the original publication (4x or more). :(

Sorry Charlie .... but First Editions of rare texts always demand a premium in the marketplace!   ;c)

Will these be marked as re-prints? Or will there be no difference from the original?

I have no idea, but I'd be surprised if there wasn't some telltale differences to be observed.

Still haven't heard back from the contact that was provided and it's been about two days now I think.

All,

I've been in touch with Deborah.  She has been very busy working.  She will respond to everyone soon!  I have asked her if the books are marked as reprint, this is what she said:
The book is not marked as a reprint. One difference in the book is the original book has a black spine and this book has a white one. The other differences are:  page 1 is on the inside laminated cover and page 108 which is titled "Notes" is on the laminated back inside cover.
Hopefully tomorrow I will have time to get back to the other people requesting a book and offer Venmo or sending a check.


Thank you!

Joe

I was contacted by Deborah Castle yesterday, and had a few back and forth emails with the last one being that they are looking into best payment options (check, paypal, etc) and will get back to me when they figure how best to proceed!

I provided an address and paid by paypal as friend.

Ask her for a paypal invoice and e-mail your name and address.

I ordered 2 books.
