    19th C. Nudes: Glass/Silver Prints (NSFW)

    I have three RARE 19th CENTURY NUDES ON GLASS, as well as fifteen EARLY 20th CENTURY GELATIN SILVER PRINTS. The glass photos include one positive and two negatives -- the positive corresponds to one of the negatives. I would like to trade them for Nikon equipment, or a portable telescope, or a good electric guitar -- see at bottom. I would also consider a trade for modern or contemporary artist's prints.

    These images were identified and appraised at the following prices by Patricia Laligant in New York -- the country's leading expert in this genre:

    -------------

    Photograph on glass, circa 1870: Nude.
    Attributed to J.A. Moulin
    $2500 dollars

    Negative on glass, circa 1870: Nudes.
    Attributed to J.A. Moulin
    $2500 dollars

    -------------

    Negative on glass, circa 1870: Nude.
    Attributed to A. Quinet
    $2500 dollars

    -------------

    15 Vintage gelatin silver prints, circa 1925: Nudes.
    Photographer: Geo Blanc
    $300 dollars each

    I've put up a web gallery of all 15 here; some are duplicate prints; some are variant crops; but all are vintage:

    --------------------

    By the way, the prices given are net, not gross: what I would be paid if a dealer sold them for me -- the market price is about a third to a half higher. I'm hoping for the equivalent of the net price in equipment (so it's a good deal for whoever trades with me). In fact, if someone wants to trade for the entire trove of photos, I'm willing to come down significantly in price -- as it saves me a lot of time and effort.

    Looking for Nikon glass for my D700, or perhaps a DX body: D90, D300s. Also a high-end portable telescope, or a truly superb electric guitar. (I know that sounds surreal, but these are all things I need.) Will consider anything interesting, but specifically looking for:

    - Nikkor AF 24-70/2.8
    - Sigma Macro of some flavor (70, 150, 180)
    - various Voigtlander and Zeiss lenses in Nikon mount
    - Nikkor 180mm f/2.8D AF ED-IF (the most recent version)
    - Nikkor MF 180/2.8 ED-IF
    - Nikkor AF 85/1.4
    - would also consider a D300 or D90 body as part of a trade
    - portable high-quality astronomical telescope (Questar, Celestron, Meade, etc.)
    - modern or contemporary art (prints, etc.)
