  1. I met Larry Selman in the 1970s at a paperweight exhibition in uptown New York City. I have the 1983 hard copy edition of the Art of the Paperweight, the 1981, 1983, and 1986 Collectors’ Paperweight Price Guide and Catalogue, and the 1992 All About Paperweights. I also purchased a few paper weights many years ago. Best wishes to Larry and the Company, particularly in these challenging times. Be safe and healthy. Jim Waters
