Type & related for sale (after long delay)

I originally posted this back in March, with much less detail, but never
had a chance to get the proper inventory done until just recently.

If you want to come see any of the materials, pretty much the only workable
times for me are Sunday afternoons. I'm going to do this as a sort of
auction, in two rounds. I'll take first round bids and then let everyone
know what the high bids are, and then take second round bids for the final
price. Ties will go to the first bidder.

Please note that these are being sold on a pick-up only basis. I will not
ship; note that it took me 6 months just to go down to make a list of what
was there. Preparing it for shipping is much more effort than I care to make.
