Reading this thread a couple of days ago, I went to the web site of the Moseley Society and ordered the publication (vol. 1). It just arrived with the mail today, so yes, they still have some volumes left for purchase.

Yes, Josh, I paid $200. I never saw it listed for $100, but no matter. I agree that the library markings detract, but to me the value was in the uniqueness and novelty of the binding. Mostly, I just wanted to check it out. Not sure yet if I will hold this in my collection or sell, but I would certainly consider any offers. At first, I thought it might have some value for rebinding (particularly for the maps, since they are not pasted down and are in nice shape), but I hate to see it dismantled. It's a nice example of the variety of library bindings out there, of which many I am sure did not stand the test of time.

Seems like a cool find. I saw it on eBay but ended up not bidding on it because of the library markings, though the first time it was listed was for $100; I almost bid on it then. You paid $200, correct? I still wouldn't mind owning it, but the library markings for me do depreciate the value and desirability of it. As far as value, I have no idea; Pieter would probably know best.

Apologies for not answering this bruffyboy. I guessed nobody had any figures. I asked FS very recently about the 2004 Deluxe (which I just purchased). They replied: "From our database, I can tell you that it was published in January 2004, but I am afraid that I don't have any further details to offer you. Due to space restrictions we are unable to retain marketing literature dating back so many years." --that's all I'm afraid. Not sure if they'd have any information at all about anything before this...
