Wayne - also try Pete Vack at velocepress.com - I think they may actually be printing it.

Hi Bryan. Thanks, but Veloce Press isn't printing or selling this one.

Ruedi, thank you. That's the best price I've found so far but its condition is listed as, "condition 5 in a range of 5 conditions with #1 being the best and age being taken into consideration." If it's in the worst possible condition, how bad is it? I think I'll email them for more info.

Thanks for your responses!

...well, then there is also the one for $98, described as "almost perfect".

Wayne,

Do try to but one in the best condition you can find. I have my copy new from when it was published (1983, 1000 copies printed as I recall). Although I handle my books with great care, the binding on my copy has weakened over time (must be almost 20 years given the date of publication!) A poorly treated one may have pages separarted from the binding. I suggest that you not crack the spine too far open, once you find a good example.

Sorry, typo, the word in my post should be "buy" not "but"!

Thanks for all of your help. I was able to get a nice copy from Alex at Albaco for a fair price. He is really a gentleman and a pleasure to do business with.

Wayne,

I was Talking with Tom Shaughnessy a couple of weeks ago. He had an original copy then.

John,

Thanks, but as I said, I've already ordered the book from Albaco. Besides, if it's like everything else that Tom has, all that's left is probably just the cover, the individual pages having been stripped out and sold independently! ;-)
