Well, the frustrating thing in this case is that the "transcriptions"
ARE probably one of a kind...and thus valuable (but NOT in the financial
sense) to researchers in Alaska's history. It's always annoying (to me
anyway) when items whose only actual value is historic fall into the
hands of people whose lives revolve around "getting rich quick"...
Also, one hopes he uses care in the packing and shipping, since one
sleeve is clearly marked "FRAGILE! GLASS!"
