    Anyone ever head of "Duke's Short Course in Prospecting?"

    Back in 1966 I ordered a kit from him...I was 16....and had a great time with it. Of course, he's dead now but no one seems to have heard about him unless you're in your 80's. I pulled it out of my storage unit and brought it home to look at again and for awhile I was 16 all over. Just curious. DAN

    That was an interesting book.

    Of course, now it is out of print, and that means its expensive to find another copy.

    I have a friend who is an absolute garage sale addict. He picked up a wooden box full of old chemicals, vials, books, etc. We've called it the box of death because of the leakage and general nastiness it had from long term storage. I am a little experienced in dealing with that kind of stuff so in return for cleaning it up and making it into a cool presentable collectible I got to keep the books that were in it (turns out it was a rock hounds field test kit). In the little pile I got both the prospecting short course and the analysis course. Great books

    Tried to send too many pix so will go a few at a time...the last one is the opened box minus the 2 manuals and the paperwork so you could see the contents underneath.

    Wow, This is amazing that you posted this. I actually purchased this kit (actually a portion of it ) on eBay several years back but did not realize that it was missing other parts and that it was even part of the Dukes Short Course. The portion that I received was the one in labeled Box #1 in your photo but it did not come with any instructions or name of mfg, etc. so I could not even research it much. I just happened upon a thread on a forum the other day from someone that included reference to the analyses that matched up with what I had. Long story I now have solved a five year mystery on this source of this kit. I would love to know what else came in the kit aside from the one box of chemicals I have. It looks like it has several other items, etc. If possible, please send me more pics or the list of contents of the kit so I can hope to rebuild the missing elements. Thanks again for posting and especially the photos!
