where the volume in question is listed under:
Advanced Book Exchange
Once at USD 250
1 at 250
2 x 225
2 x 250
1 x 300
Plenty of choice, there.
I can see from the listings why the price is so high;
only 250 copies of one edition
BTW, at today's exchange rate, the bookseller Mike visited is asking for
USD 720 -- which, as the old song title has it, is nice work if you can
get it <G>
