Howard Pyle, the Brandywine Tradition and Flash Gordon

I'm jumping up and down after finding a treasure trove of art books about Howard Pyle, The Brandywine Tradition and a hardcover large Classic Flash Gordon book! Wowee! A local artist had a tremendous sale of books, art supplies, and art mags as far back as the 1940's! Last week I bought a large wooden easel, bunches of oil paints, brushes and magazines for incredible prices. (thank you to the dear artist who sold these treasures. He has been in the illustration and art biz since the 1940's I believe.)
