This book looks interesting, and after reading the summary on Amazon I moved my mouse to the "Buy" button.

I stopped short of clicking when I saw the price--$35.00.

Yeah, unfortunately these limited edition books cost a bundle. I'd really like to see Harrington's books get reissued in mass market -- maybe a publisher out there is paying attention?

What is just as interesting is that it is "temporary out of stock". Either it is selling well at that price, or they sold the three copies they had.

Small press, or not...$35.00 for a book is more than I'd spend...no matter how good it might be - so I'll just take your word for it, David. :)

First edition books

First edition books are collector's items and are definitely great to own. While first editions of some books can be exorbitantly costly and out of reach for common people, hyper modern first edition books are often available at reasonable price. If you are lucky, these modern first edition books can even be signed by authors which make them even more valuable.

Adventure Books

These modern first edition adventure fiction books are maintained in the best of conditions that book lovers would definitely appreciate.


cky, these modern first edition books can even be signed by authors which make them
