I think the auction ended without selling. I’ll keep a lookout for it being relisted.

I own the book, compiled and prepared by the late Harry Waanders and MC Kostek. I'll have to check it out, but i remember it was basically a lyrics book, soft bound/paperback, A4 size. Made with a lot of love for Nico.
Harry Waanders had a very large collection of VU and related. He passed away in 2003.
Some VU fans gathered at his place in 1993.
