I posted this over in the Pub, but someone recommended that I publish it here too. It's a great book. I have bought three in the last few months; one for me, one as an experiment to resell, and one for a gift for a friend. Nacho Banos wrote a great coffee table book on the earliest years of the Blackguard Teles and Esquires. It is easily purchased, new, for about $160 from him direct, with a nice signature addressed to you if you like. That's the total price, shipped from Spain. Oddly, there are people who seem to proffer their new copies, still in the nice packaging which clearly states "theblackguardbook.com" right on the top of the carton, as "Out of Print" and "Extremely Rare," etc. for $400-500 dollars or more. I'm all for people making a buck but this reeks in my opinion because they are blatantly lying. The book is NOT out of print. It is NOT rare. Nacho has a couple thousand copies available, I think. Over at Reverb, where the copies routinely are offered for $500+ I offered one I specifically ordered as an experiment. I offered it for what I paid, plus the cost to ship it to the next guy, plus the reverb + paypal fees, plus the cost of a sandwich at the local dive and sold it in about an hour... It just bugs me that people describe it as "out of print" when they bought their own copy, directly from Nacho, a few days earlier. If, on the other hand, they fell for the "out of print" lie too, and paid the big bucks, then I'm sorry about that and wouldn't want anyone else to make the same mistake. I don't work for Nacho, I paid the price asked. But if you want the book, click this link and buy yours for $160: http://theblackguardbook.com Nacho insists on using Flash to enhance his presentation. If you click the link and it doesn’t load for you, you’d just get sent to his email address if you clicked the buy link which is how you order them anyway. His email address is email@example.com You can just email him, ask him how much (150 euros, shipped) and do the Paypal thing. The books I ordered from him were delivered, from Spain, within four days.
