I'm running a Civil War game for kids at Historicon this Summer. I'd like to give each of the 6 participants a copy of the Dover coloring book on ACW Uniforms (by Peter Copeland), as it seems to be the least expensive book I can find on the subject.
Surprisingly, I haven't found all that many copies--1 here, 1 there, frequently in only "acceptable" condition--which doesn't sound too good!. I know I can buy new copies directly from Dover, but the total cost for 6 copies is out of reach for me right now.
By any chance do any of you guys have a copy you can part with? I can cover postage, and add a couple bucks if you want.
If you can help me with this, my email is: [ bumbydadATgmailDOT com ].

Your Amazon-fu is strong, weed hopper.

Why don't you just order them from Dover?

I checked Amazon, eBay, and Dover before posting; getting new copies that way would be a lot easier; the problem for me is that 6 copies will run me $30 USD+; I'd like to do it a bit cheaper. The last time I visited a battlefield bookstore, there was a fairly nice little set of drawings showing the uniforms for both sides. The set was cheap, but this was 6-7 years ago, so they may not even sell it anymore. Bull Run and Gettysburg are both within driving distance, so I guess I need to check around.
