    I was going to list these on ebay, but thought I would ask here first.
    I searched online to get a good idea of going prices. A few of these are out of print, so it was a little more difficult.

    I think I came up with decent prices.

    Bulbophyllums and their allies by Siegerist $15. + $6 postage
    Orchids travel by air by Mulder and Mulder-Roelfsema $30. +$6 postage
    Orchids of Java by Comber $25. + $10. postage
    Orchids of Borneo Vol. 2 Bulbophyllum by Vermeulen $40. + $10. postage

    Let me know if you think my pricing is off the mark.

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    Hi Chuck,
    I'd like the Bulbophyllums and their allies book if you've still got it. I'll PM you.

    The Orchids of Java and the Orchids of Borneo seem kinda underpriced. Those are usually pretty pricey books.

    Hi Jon,
    I know it's on the low side, but I just thought someone here could use them.
    Plus I didn't want to abuse this section of the forum, so I thought keeping the price down would be best.

    It might even help increase the number of Bulbo-addicts here. : )

    It is a worthwhile book. Lots of pictures, elevation and/or habitat info and a wide range of genera. All at a great price.

    Ditto what Marni said. A "good" price on the web is $60; Chuck's price is great!

    Turns out I have another copy of Orchids travel by air by Mulder and Mulder-Roelfsema $30. +$8 postage (sorry, I under-estimated the postage last time.)
    I still have Orchids of Java by Comber $20. + $10. postage. (dropped the price by $5.)
    Anyway, drop me a note if you are interested.

    Thanks
