Kurz and Allison....Postscript
All mine. All paid for. All the prints intact!
All's well that ends well so they say. Following on from the great Kurz and Allen book debacle I am now a much happier chap as I was able to locate a further copy of the above - with ALL the plates present and correct! It was slightly more expensive than the original copy but is in better overall condition (actually merely having all the plates would constitute being in better condition but you get the drift!).
I shall be using this as my, ahem, 'uniform reference' for the Spencer Smith Old Style Toy Soldier ACW project which I am looking forward to getting underway just as soon as the Confederate half arrives.
With the other copy I shall carefully remove the remaining plates with a view to framing them. I also have another idea for them which I think is rather novel and should prove very popular - no details as yet as I need to think about this carefully.
Once the new copy arrives I will of course look to review the prints in full and share how I shall be making use of them for the ACW project.
