HARRY G. TRAVER: (1982)

"Legends of Terror"

 

By Richard Munch. This is the one! The famous coaster designer

of the 1920s - 40s is profiled here from his

turn-of-the-century flat rides to his coaster creations that

struck terror in many and excitement in others. Traver's work is

well documented through company catalogs, photos, clippings,

trade advertisements, and diagrams. *(Recommended. Although the

original photo quality is not the best, the book reproduction

work is good. The Crystal Beach Cyclone is well profiled here

with many pictures, a description, and a layout diagram.)

Is this book worth buying as it sells for $200 +...?

It's an excellent book, but totally not worth $200. I think the highest I'd go would be about $50.

 

Try your local public library (assuming they have them in England). That's how I was able to read that book.

 

If you want a copy for yourself, keep checking eBay. A copy just sold on March 4th for $67.99 USD, which though pricey is a long ways off from $200.

I have a copy and probably paid about $16.95 or so for it waaaaayyyy back in the late '80s just after I joined ACE. Nice little book, but I can't see how it could possibly sell for $200.

You're totally right. It's not worth $200. I'll give you $20 for your copy.

I just got a postcard from Borders:

 

"The title you special ordered (Harry G. Traver: Legends of Terror) is currently unavailable. To reorder please contact Borders in one to six weeks. Thank you."

 

This is exactly what I expected would happen. I figured I'd go ahead and try though.
