Is it a first or second impression, the page left of the Contents page will state First published in 1986 only (no reprints mentioned) if it is a first impression?

"VG" can mean different things to different people. Other factors bringing the price down might include: the price being clipped; just a poorer (i.e. VG-) jacket generally; or perhaps the top page edge a little faded. Those points aside, your copy is a 2nd impression --and this devalues it (in comparison to a 1st edition/1st impression) more than anything. £10 perhaps? HoME books, in general, aren't really selling that well I don't think.

I agree with Khamul that second impressions aren't very sought after, though you could probably get something for it. Your best bet is probably to post it on ebay with a low starting bid and see what happens.
