AN AMERICAN LEGEND SCULPTURE OVER THE WAVES ELIE NADELMAN COLLECTOR Folks, the author states in closing, “The builder of a ship felt it incumbent upon him to give a finishing touch to a vessel by the addition of ornamental carving. While it was always his ambition that this should take the form of a figurehead, his appropriation would frequently not permit this extravagance. Then he compromised with the scroll-work on the prow or a carved fiddle-head, the latter placed on the ship’s cutwater.” Here is the rest of the story entitled: AN AMERICAN LEGEND SCULPTURE OVER THE WAVES ELIE NADELMAN COLLECTOR FACTUAL REPORTING AT THE TIME NOT RETREAD HISTORY - 82 YEARS OLD AN AMERICAN LEGEND SCULPTURE OVER THE WAVES ELIE NADELMAN COLLECTOR This is story as originally written.

During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer’s shelf. Because Old Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell. This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no additional cost. I hope you appreciate the effort.

It’s a shame that our past is being lost. My wife kids me that after I find a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it, take a picture, scan it, write the blurb, pay the eCRATER entry fee and commission, that I end up making about 50 cents an hour. But, OH HOW I LOVE THIS OLD FACTUAL REPORTING HISTORY. What a Rare Item!!! Great Pictures. You will love it as it was saved from this old American news magazine of many years ago. These pages (8-1/2 by 12 inches) are the ORIGINAL - 82 YEAR-OLD piece in excellent condition. As clearly stated in my description, this is featured story saved from a rarely found and seldom read American news magazine. I don't give out name of publication or date because I have caught competitors copying my index and work and trying to sell it as theirs. I hope you understand. Buyer pays postage of $5.00 Priority; $13.25 for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax.
