Surely nobody is crazy enough to spend that kind of money?


Hopefully not. He is probably looking to recoup the cost of the custom slipcases as well as make a profit. They appear to be nice slipcases (David Miller produces a good product with these, I think), but I personally doubt they actually add much monetary value to a book (much the same way facsimile DJs don't).

With regards to those three map books, I have the 1st impressions of each, and I think they varied from about a pound for the cheapest to three or four pounds for the most expensive. Pretty sure they were all remaindered (without remainder marks). They aren't very good books or maps, IMHO.

Once anyone has read it, I'd be interested on hearing the verdict, especially as to whether it is worth purchasing if you already have The Monsters and the Critics.

More madness from the same seller. He has quite a few books up and prices are - without exception in the case of the ones with the David Miller slipcases - completely absurd.

These definitely seem to be getting cheaper, finally (although they might have a little way to come down still). I picked up a near-fine unread copy (only issue is that the "Exodus" lettering on the spine has faded from orange to yellow) for $118 on eBay. Quite possibly the only book I will buy this year, so I'm happy enough at the price paid.

1st impression hardback - Bumped spine, but might still be better than purchasing a paperback for someone who doesn't already have a copy (assuming the price doesn't go up much).
