    WTB - William Mortensen "the command to look"

    I am looking for a copy of "the command to look". I don't want to sound like a cheapskate, but the more reasonable price the better (I guess I am a cheapskate afterall ). I'm willing to pay a fair price for a hard to find book, but the handfull of $300+ jacked up copies on amazon are way out of my price range. I'm not looking for a collectors copy - used, abused, and misused are ok by me (I'm just looking for a reference copy). Thanks

    For those of you lucky enough to own this book - I'd even be willing to pay you for a photocopy. I'm not all that interested in the collectibility aspect - just the practical info inside.

    Do you have a good library nearby, or perhaps you could even do interlibrary loan?

    I got a copy of The Decisive Moment sent to my local library and I could barely believe it.

    I'd also gladly pay for a photocopy set. Eventually I will buy an original one to go with the signed ones I already own, but that'll have yet to wait...

    All, it might be worthwhile to find out if this book is under copyright or not, before anyone gets a cease and desist letter from his estate for selling improperly reproduced pages.

    Wikipedia says it was first published in 1937, and he died in 1965, so would still be under copyright, I believe.

    Just saw your posting. I know it is an older post. I have been going through items from my parents estate and listing them as time permits in my online store. I did just unpack and list a copy of this book in my store and it is a 1st edition 4th printing. I have priced it at quite a bit less than other sellers. If you would like to check it out it is listed in my store ---- foundtreasuresden at ecrater.
