What's that I just heard echoing through the aether? Why, it's a war cry... it sounds like they're saying "hold my beer".

Is this too much? I feel like the asking price is on the high side...

Very high I think, even for a very fine/new condition copy. It looks like this particular copy has been handled heavily, as well. Damage to the leather at the top of the spine, fraying of cloth strands on the slipcase, heavily bumped corner on (at least) one of the boards, is what I see from those pictures.

From the listing: "The book is in Near Fine unread condition, one bumped corner. ."

Er, well that's a lie. It isn't anywhere near near fine, even taking the corner out of the equation. The edges of the slipcase look all like they have been rounded off.

That's a totally crap copy. Better waiting for a decent one. At that price, doubly so.

I... just can't do it at that price/condition. I need a little more sugar...

Nah, that's a rough copy.

Appreciate the validation there, Stu.

I have to say, with inflation being what it is and Amazon's series around the corner, the relative lack of PoMEs coming up for sale is rapidly diminishing my hopes to ever find a nice copy at or under $200 or so.
