I'm pretty sure that you will get a copy for 10 pounds or so on eBay if you don't mind waiting a couple of months for one to show up. I know one sold on TradeMe (NZ) fairly recently, and I'm pretty sure it was up for $10-15 NZD. A bundle of books including that one sold on eBay UK for 35 pounds-ish, but I'm also pretty sure that I saw one a couple of months back go for a tenner or thereabouts, although I couldn't see it looking for sold stuff.

There can't be that many people that care too much about this book, given its nature (classic unnecessary HarperCollins money-spinner)


I did come across this WTF, when looking at sold listings though. I'm not sure I really believe it sold for that, though, though, given you can get them for thirty - fifty pounds ordinarily....

Was interested in acquiring a hardcover of the above, either a 1994 or 2002 edition. I found the prices on amazon and abe to be quite high, especially for the 2002 edition (> $400 usd on amazon). This seems a bit ridiculous; am I missing something?



Not so far as I am aware. Just usual pricing nonsense - I think I paid $10 or less (for the 2002, I assume -- I never unpacked it after moving to NZ). I don't think it is uncommon.

The website image is a donation.
It is a first printing.
The owner is not on your list.


Ahh, cool. That means I only have one more copy to collect, not two :)

Mine is a second too.


Is the picture on your website of your copy or of another one? If it is your copy, then there are two states of the second impression (one with the illustration several mm further to the right. I had assumed that this was a difference between 1st and 2nd, but maybe not?)

Have 2nd Impression


Ta. List updated. Hoping to see if there are more of one impression versus the other out there. Gut feel is that the second may be less common.
