Pretty sure Laurel sold another copy a couple of years ago for a similar amount. Seems to be what they go for (although the copy just sold certainly wasn't a great example).

Nope. If I'd wanted it, I'd have bought it at the last auction for less than half the price. It is an interesting item, but fundamentally, I just don't see it as being a $36,000 interesting item. After all, it is a printed proof, not manuscript pages. I expect someone will buy it, though, for the simple reason that a lot of people have much money and nowhere sensible to put it at the moment.

Always thought these look like 1970s furniture, but low start, so might end up a good buy for someone in the market for such
