I had this website passed along to me.  Many free downloads (in French) but you can always use Google Translate.

While asking to do a bio on  John D. Marshall  he  kindly let me distribute FOR FREE his out of print/sold out book (The Other Lake Superior Agates) while we put something together!  The book- all 190 pages can be downloaded from the below link (it’s a PDF file which took 1 min to download).

The front and back covers and picture key are in jpg format below.  Enjoy and Thanks John for this special present!

Sounds like a promising idea. I’ve been a ‘hound since age 7…I’m 60 now. You might want to check out my book about Lake Superior Agates first. It was printed in three editions but is currently sold out. However, it’s available exactly as printed as a pdf. The covers of the book were done in “illustrator” software and so I supply them as jpgs.

You have my permission to post these jpgs and the pdf of the book on your site if you wish. The only condition being that it is for free distribution only.

Cover

This is the cover of my book about Agates. The covers are not included in the pdf download available on my page and at several groups. Some have asked for the cover so I'm posting jpegs of the outer and inner sides.
