Dear fellow video librarians,

A donor has offered us a 16mm print of the 1924 version of "The Thief
of Bagdad". We don't have it in the collection and I wouldn't mind
having it, even on 16.

Problem is, the donor would like to have a thank-you letter listing a
fair price for the film print, for tax purposes. I have no problem
expressing our gratitude for a donation, but I have no clue on the

The DVD goes for $18.19

Any thoughts?

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
