In Topic: Montblanc L129 - Myth pen for sale

I don't understand, it's a rare pen so you're not going to post how much you want for it?  Very nice pen though - gotta love MB!

I second what David has suggested.  I periodically use computers that will not automatically open my email.  However, I love the site and the ease in which it can be navigated - I've bookmarked your site, thanks.



In Topic: Hello from BC

Hello Dave,

I grew up in North Vancouver, some of my best memories are in BC, however I'm in Nova Scotia now. I'm relatively new to FP and to this board and it's nice to see another Canadian! Are there many FP stores out your way?


In Topic: Starting a Parker Collection..

So, I've been converted - and who couldn't like Parker pens, the founders are such nice people!  The Great Grandson has co-authored a book - has anyone read it?  Any recommendations for books on Collecting Parker. 





You already had one: the Shepperd and Zazove's book on Duofold (old and news), which is now on my working table along with my black Duofolds. See below:




But I would also consider a more generalist book, such as Andrea Lambrou's Fountain Pens of the World. Apart from being a very beautiful book, it can open your mind to vintage pens other than Parker.


I must have missed that recommendation.  Nibs.com has Fountain Pens of the World - I'll place an order with them for that book this week.  I can't find the Shepperd and Zazove's book anywhere though, I'll keep my eye open for that.
