    This is a random listing of photographic books, manuals, etc. that fall into one of two categories: either they are (1) really cheap and I don't consider them worth the effort of extensive description and inclusion on my other pages; or (2) they are in less than Excellent condition. Pages may be bent, spines may be worn, covers may be soiled. BUT THEY ARE CHEAP! Major damage will be noted. Descriptions are minimal, because the price doesn't warrant much of my time, but it beats letting them just sit in my warehouse. Please refer to "Bargain Page" when ordering.

    #92236.  CBA Projection Lamp  I bought a bunch of these in seemingly new condition, without boxes. Some seem to be a little loose in their ceramic base, but all are unused. I sell the CBA in its original box for $25.00. I am offering you FOUR of these non-boxed bulbs for the same price--$25.00. If one works fine, you're even; if two, three or four work well, you're way ahead. If all four are defective, I'll exchange them or refund your purchase price. $25.00
