Yes, the current auction is really bizarre.

I have never fully got my head around HoMe prices / scarcity. Partly because I've never really been in the market for them. I have replaced the one book that I didn't buy as a first edition (I think), and upgraded another one that had a worn jacket, but other than that I've only followed the market intermittently.

It has twenty-three separate pieces in, ranging from two to twenty-four pages long. The book proper goes from page 1 to page 386; there are then sixteen pages of references and fifteen pages of index.

Binding is simple paperback, I think of the sort known as "perfect bound".
