Well it failed to sell at £59.88, just a few pence short of the reserve, which I believe to have been £60 :roll: I think you might get an offer to buy it Chris :)
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I thought 60 POUNDS was way way too cheap for this book.... what did you expect it to go for?

It's difficult to tell as it was the third printing and the ones that make really silly money are first printings. But I was surprised nobody else had a go after Chris and I pushed the price up :roll:

That's more like it, if you get the offer to buy have a think about it Chris, you probably won't get another copy that cheap and it is a good read :)
