Edgar Willey, VP of the Cellex Corporation had just found out new-comer Charlie Lord was a painter. After showing amazement that anyone living on The Lane could make a living, Edgar stated he wasn't the arty type, but that he had a nice collection of courier knives. Charlie is puzzled by the term, courier knives. Edgar offers to show them and begins to mention their titles. Then Charlie says, "Oh Currier and Ives. " Will combine shipping on more than one book. .
