I own one of the ex-library copies of this--I think I paid something like $50 for it awhile back.

I purchased one about 4 years ago in an Ebay Auction. And amazingly very close in price - £133. There does seem to be a demand and they don't come up for sale too often. One would think that with a print run of 3000 that they would come up for sale more often. I wonder is there an error in the print run figure (or did a lot of copies go to libraries).

Saw a couple sell cheaper, but not in VG to NF Condition.

Also saw one sell at $750!!!!!!!

I know; £131. I'll happily spend my money on something more worthwhile. I just don't think items like this are worth this much. 3,000 copies is a huge number, for how many of these turn up. It's not like you see tatty copies turning up; all are in pretty collectable condition --so where the hell are they all!? Bah! I say; people shouldn't need to pay triple figures for this.

*grumble* I still regret not going a bit higher on the ebay auction of The Old English Exodus two days ago... it went for around £130. Only 3,000 copies printed, it seldom turns up. I would be a happy with a reprint, though, if it ever comes out.
