strewth!

Is it all that uncommon? I mean, there were three thousand copies printed. I have two of 'em; where's all the rest?

WorldCat shows almost 600 known copies in libraries at this time. Assuming over the last thirty years many libraries purged their copies, I would venture a guess that most copies went straight to library collections, not to the collector market.

I rarely see these coming up for sale in nice shape (not ex-library). Doesn't mean it is a rare book, but it is scarce for collectors.

It looks like someone bought the copy. Was it anyone from TCG?
