Well in eBay terms it is not Unique (only 2 copies known so far....)


You are right, I feel bad about almost using "unique" correctly on an eBay description. Shame on me!

Time for eBay - "Unique! One of a kind! ULTRA RARE! Worth meeeellions!!!"


Well in eBay terms it is not Unique (only 2 copies known so far, Unique on eBay usually means less than 1000 exist) and it it must be worth gazillions being super Ultra Rare. Or worth nothing as a misprint

Hi Deagol,

you are correct. I have found that my (many) ABE wants are gone if they are listed overnight (which is daytime for the UK) and I have a good shot at nabbing them if I get them mid-day (overnight for the UK). I wonder if there is a pattern here.....

1922 (the year before) of The Microcosm raised £250 at 10/- per annual subscription (so ~500 subscribers) according to the summer 1923 issue. So I would guess there were more than 500 issues of Spring 1923 printed. The later issues I now have do not indicate how much was raised in 1923 so I don't have a better number to work from.
