I am interested in how rare this book actually is. It should not be rare, as it went through two printings but unlike the Heritage in Literature does not turn up.

Does anyone own the second printing of this book (1970 version)?


I'd imagine that due to the nature of the book's target audience, a lot became tatty/dirty and were just tossed out. primary school kids tear things, and cover them in snot and paint. I expect there are a few out there in people's attics, though, and they will turn up as kids toss out their parents stuff.

That said, I don't think in this case that rare = hugely valuable, as there isn't anything specifically notable about it (other than the cover, of course), and there can't be that many completist collectors out there that NEED to have a copy. I thought the $500 eBay start price was steep, and I don't think it would have had any bidders at that level.
