Why

eBay Item #111602707975


Why is it so cheap???? "Condition is commensurate with age. Faded spine. Foxing/tanning to edges and/or ends. Pages tanned". It would be 800 pounds if it was in good nick! :)

Sorry, I have no idea why these are so overpriced or seemly this popular.


I'd like to own a set purely so I could give them to someone who I don't like. Maybe that is the explanation -- people are buying them for their nemeses.

Yes it has, another 420 copies were reprinted, I expect it to be reprinted as it goes out of print and there are still demands for the book.

copy numbers from correspondence with HC.


Thanks for that, Trotter. If anyone here gets a copy, it would be interesting to know who the printer is, and if it has a statement of reprinting.

I agree with you, but have no real hope that the general ebay seller will figure out the difference between copyright date and impression date. If they do, likely they will chose to emphasize whichever they feel will increase the value of what they have for sale.



You have hit the nail on the head with " they will chose to emphasize whichever they feel will increase the value of what they have for sale". For the most part, this is what sellers are doing, IMHO. Some sellers are genuinely confused, many are just deceptive (I've had plenty where I have pointed out the mistake choose not to correct their auctions).
