I guess I'm more of a hunter than a collector. I have the resources to track down and purchase items available online (within reason), and have done so on occassion. My real joy comes in perusing used bookstores and second hand shops looking for unexpected finds. True, I do come up empty handed more times than not - and many times will come across editions I already have - I usually pick these up anyway as the price is usually very good and I pass them on to several friends who are casual collectors as well. It's all good, and a wonderful hobby no matter what the focus one may have.

What am I missing?

They look to be the exact same book - but for very different prices ($189 vs $750)

Is it just me, or is this guy asking very high prices for the items he has listed?
for example:

Well here's another one to list as a lucky find. I stumbled upon a 1972 unwin allen hard copy of The Hobbit in quite good shape (no dj however), and picked it up for $2. Made my morning!

I would be proud as well. I recently found later printings of first editions of the ROTK and TTT online, and am anxiously awaiting their arrival (they will be the only first editions in my collection).
