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.

Yeah. Was glad to find it. It seems like there should be plenty of them out there, really, even if half (at a guess) ended up in various libraries. I expect there will be plenty of them floating about with pages removed to disguise their library origins at some point.

I don't normally bid on auctions in the US or ones that use the Global Shipping Program, but I made an exception for this one, which was in Utah (and spent quite a bit of time making sure the seller packaged it properly in an appropriately sized flat rate box with internal padding, rather than a padded envelope). eBay still opened it, but at least they didn't repackage or do any damage. I figure if you overpack or under-pack, you are screwed when it comes to GSP auctions. That said, it arrived very quickly (less than a week).

I bought a copy many years ago - so long that I can't even remember whether it was on eBay, Abebooks, or some other online portal - from someone who had only listed the title and the editor. I paid a good price (for me, not for him); he then took ages to send it to me, and I was worried that he had realised what he had, and sold it to someone else for a higher price. But it turned up in the end.
