I love eBay as a resource for miniature conversions and the like, it is also great for finding those little gems that hide away from a long forgotten time in gaming and modelling history. Recently I was lucky enough to not just acquire 1 but 3 different lots from auctions all ending around the same time, the theme that connects them all, John Blanche.
Strangely enough although I didn't know it at the time, the reason I ended up buying my favourite book of all time was because of the cover by the great man himself, this was Krokodil Tears, which I managed to get a copy in pretty good condition (mine has seen very much better days to say the least) alongside 2 other dark future books I hadn't acquired as yet.
Secondly, I also won a copy of the Citadel Miniatures Modelling Guide, this had an old article by John again about his own methodology.
Finally, I also got hold of a quite legendary book, which even though it is not in great condition was a pretty good bargain compared to other copies online, this is the book Ratspike, a collaboration between John Blanche & Ian Miller and full of amazing inspirational prints, well worth a look if you're a fan of John or Ian.
