Hi, I am looking for a book by Charles Wendel called "American Gasoline Engines Since 1872". Would anyone be able to help me find one that is affordable? Thanks so much!

Unless you can find someone who has been in a closet for the last couple years the answer is, unfortunately, no.
Everyone HERE knows what they have been bringing which is why I will post this:
A hardcover JUST SOLD on Ebay for $189.16 and I just sold a soft cover edition a few weeks ago for almost $90.
Not very promising............

There are one or two on eBay now, but they won't likely be cheap. One is #6938370694.

I meet a man at an engine show, was talking to him about my jaeger and a few other things when he asked if I had yet obtained a copy of the BYB...I responded that no I had not because they were kind of expensive...he says "no, not realy, $40 is not to bad for all the info it provides." WOW... shoulda offered 50 for his copy! When I told him that they were going for well above 40 dollers he thought I was off my rocker!

Well I have a brand new spare copy if someone is interested for the money you talking about.
Will be nice to see the interest
