A new BYB volume 2 is out soon as seen on sel list
American Gas Engines Volume 2 is completed! 416 pages of all different
than Volume 1. The new book is hardcover and matches the original one like
reprinted a year ago. We have no idea how many to get printed, so here's the
deal: The book will sell at $60, but we will pay the postage if you send us
your prepublication order. That's $60 postpaid in the US. Or, if you need to
replace Volume 1, we will give you a special deal of $110 for both Volume 1
Volume 2, and we'll ship them to you together, postage paid! We hope Volume
to be ready the end of June. BYB 1 AND BYB 2 will give you a thousand pages
engines! Cash, check or money order, no PayPal or credit cards or open
accounts. C. H. Wendel, The Prairie Press, 4415 F Street, Amana, Iowa 52203
I emailed the man himself and this was his reply
Please add another $20 for shipping. I think you'll like some of the
British engines in the appendix, like the Tangye's portable of
We tried to get this running last year on the reprinted BYB. Using an 'M Bag'
which is up to 66lbs for $18.50 flat rate surface postage, we could have got 8
or 10 books over. Not enough interest so I dropped it.
M Bag is a USPS service and available for media mailing only (books etc etc)

I bought my BYB many years ago at a rally (from the late Jim Parkinson ISTR)
and I suspect most other 'interested parties' would already have aquired a
copy by last year. Perhaps initial demand for the newly published second
volume would make it worthwhile? Looks like you've got at least two
potential customers (me and Dave) - anyone else?
Remind me of the drill - I went through all this last year when I bought
some Maytag parts from Marvin's Maytag Shed and ended up paying for an IMO
from the bank, then the Royal mail wouldn't releas the parcel until I'd paid
some sort of duty, all in it nearly doubled the cost! Does the Post office
do IMO's for free or did you mail cash?
