Indeed. Point is these prices are inflated; your £190 seems about right. It's the same with many titles. I was on ABE just there looking at Methuen copies of The Silmarillion. There are about half a dozen on there --three or four of them have been there for years. To me (baring in mind these are genuinely quite rare [sub 200 no doubt]) this suggests these are over-priced; or put more clearly --there are not enough buyers who think these prices are value for money. So, we don't buy, & they don't sell --& they list for years. Totally pointless.
