This is a brief reminder that the sale of the Manesse Codex on eBay wll be
over in  little over  day from now.  The bidding has gone quite well, but I
would love to see it go higher...particularly as it is for a very good
cause.  The entire purchase price will be donated to the Calvert County, MD
Relay for Life of the American Cancer Society.  This organization provides
community help for those stricken with all forms of cancer and their
families/friends, advocate on the local, state and federal levels for
legislation that will affect research and education, conduct and fund
research by those just getting started in the field of cancer research,
provide lodging free of charge near many of the major cancer centers...just
to mention a few.  In fact, they provide a 24-hour hotline where anyone who
is in need of information or assistance can call!  And they work with all
kinds of cancer...not to mention the fact that over 70% of the funds they
raise go to support the work they do.  So I'm hoping that some one of you
out there will see fit to bid higher for the book...it is a limited edition,
out of print, with only a few remaining.

I apologize if you find this objectionable or out of place on this list.
However, I'm trying to let as many people as possible know about my listing.

I am selling a hard-cover reproduction, in German, of the Manesse Codex, on
eBay.  The link is

The purpose of the auction is to raise funds for the American Cancer
Society's Relay for Life of Calvert County.  Fundraising this year has been
difficult because of the economic situation, so I'm hoping that the sale
price will be substantial.  The entire selling price, including any fees
charged by eBay, will be donated to the ACS
<http://www.cancer.org/docroot/home/index.asp>to help support its research,
community programs and advocacy.  I feel certain that each of you has had
their lives touched by cancer...a friend, family member or perhaps, like me,
yourself.  We are working to end death by cancer in our lifetime...how many
other organizations do you know of that have as their mission to be
