    Sorry, but he's notorious for taking credit for other's work and posting dubious images represented as original, and then alleging copyright.

    Not to mention major episodes in the past of specious scholarship and theory/conjecture presented as fact. Please view with a small boatload of salt.

    No. Spotted it on the Facebook site owned by David Isaacson. Article says it was co-authored by Daniel A. Zazove and Ramon Campos. Never heard of either of them. As I mentioned on FPN, Dr. David I. is banned there. However, his only question was whether Campos was free of the copyright and therefore free to post.

    "Ramon Campos" has also posted in the past - voluminously - as "Lazard". I believe he even posted stuff here. At first when I saw people who were known to be very knowledgable in pendom debunking him, I wondered if it was either rare or territorial, but later I found that Campos has also been doing similar posts in European pen forums and attracting negative reviews for inaccuracies. I can't tell how many images might have been lost (in posts) from the passage of time, but an early example of the shallow and sketchy level of scholarship on display can be seen in this thread on FPN from 2012.

    Again, I'm not claiming the material in the OP is necessarily suspect, just to be wary and not be swayed by all the cool historic images.

    Dan Zazove is a well-respected Parker collector and authority from Chicago. With David Shepherd, he co-authored the authorized history "Parker Duofold. "

    After digging a bit, it does seem like a collaboration with Mr. Zazove, which bodes well for authenticity if he is actually involved.

    Yeah, I agreed with you. I didn't know much about the Parker history. I am glad I found this post in which you have shared the Parker history article link with us. I will surely read it after hiring an essay writer with the help of this https://www.topessaywriting.org/rese...diting-service site. I am not good at writing an essay assignment and that is why I always need help from professional essay writer.

    A consistent and relevant argumentative research paper topic is halfway to successful paper creation. Fortunately, with the help of the service, I will never struggle to choose the most appealing theme for the essay again. Best samples for free. Excellent! http://superbgrade.com/blog/30-good-argumentative-research-paper-topics-and-ideas

    Somewhere way back I interacted with him on here or FPN.

    Poor Dan Zazove, to have his name connected with Lazard.
