Dear Mr. Nagel,

I know that the Multnomah County Library downtown Portland location has a
special collections room which I frequent to read the rare and expensive
works of the late ethnomycologist Robert Gordon Wasson.  Considering the
library's extensive and invaluable collections of books and other works on
Oregon's natural and human history in addition to having all of Wasson's
works (including the two volume Mushrooms, Russia and History costing around
$4000 on average), I believe that this could be an appropriate home for your
rare two volume set.  This would also allow it to be viewable to the
public.  I would contact the special collections room specifically in this
matter.  Please post to the forum again once you've decided on a home for
them.  Good luck.


-Daniel Newman
