This book I use to own but not anymore.
A River city copy with the grease pencil on the front cover. Nice book. Atlas war hard to find in decent shape 👍

I guess someone in the area could have bought them from the Sotheby's auction. I have found other pedigree's out in the wild and the owner had no idea.

It's also possible a distributor in the area was stamping all their books like this...but they sure do look the part.

Congrats! Great looking books. Is there a date stamp on the ASM124? I know I've seen some with the stamp on the back cover.
