Once More with Footnotes cheap on Ebay

Postby DaveC » Tue Jul 19, 2011 8:42 am

Once More with Footnotes cheap on Ebay it's at £16 at the moment, there's a reserve that hasn't been met yet (it may be v. high), but I know I won't be able to afford it. Sooooooooooooo Heads Up!

There are a couple of others on there that are at £420 and £229 art the moment as a comparison... :D

Think i'll wait til the book of short stories comes out . Price of OMWFN is too high . It'd be nice if i'd gotten a copy years back but won't fork out a few hundred :D

not heard at all. And a few of the online ones are there quite legally :D
Bought a few of the anthologies with the stories for next to nothing as well so i've read most of them. still half hopeful of stumbling across a copy mispriced in a second hand shop but hey you can dream :D

That makes for an interesting moral dilemma - if you saw OMWFN in a charity shop priced at eg £5, would you tell them of their mistake or buy it? Would the identity of the charity make any difference?

No judgements, by the way. Just wondered.

Does that apply too when you find a rare Japanese porcelaine?

:roll: Kicking myself all the way but I would most probably point it out to the charity. UGH!

Yup.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

As the third printing it might not make the really high prices a first printing would. You could get lucky here Dave
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

It's at £31 now, too high for me already, I know it's a bargain but...

I thought there were only 2500 copies, how many printings were there?

As far as I know there were just 3 printings. 2,500 is the total number, the first printing was for 1000 I think.
