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

I bought my Exodus nearly ten years ago, cheaply, from a very disorganised seller on Abebooks. He kept on making excuses about not sending it to me, and I was thinking, "Oh no, he's realised its true worth, and is selling it to someone else for more." But no, in the end, he sent it - and very nice it was too!
