Like new and even autographed "to Pat"!!! Hey it was meant for ME!!!  So who will buy me an early Christmas pressie? 

Awww, com'mon it's onlly 750.00 !!!!

Ok be cheap! I found a second one (also signed but not to Pat) and you save 200.00!.... and it had this photo which the other had none (like someone would spend 750.00 without so much as a picture of the merchandise) so I trust the photo more so ... yeah, I'll take the "cheap" copy LOL.

To be honest, this is my first "eyes on" proof that these first 3 Pern books were ever out in hardback!  I wonder what makes them so expensive when sci-fi/ fantasy is "not" considered anything worth reading??

Yeah...I wonder too, Pat. I will never understand how these things work. I wonder what a First Edition of any signed Hemingway Book would bring??

And I wish I could get it for you, too, like Debi....!

Debi: awww lol...thanks!

Hi Naomi: Hemingway I'd expect to be expensive! Just never thought Fantasy would become such a collectors item.

Makes me think I should look through those boxes of books in my garage before I take them to the library to donate!

My jaw is on the floor. $750. Wow. I'm amazed that a fantasy book is so precious. Wish I owned it. Keep an eye out in thrift shops, Pat! And if I win the lottery this weekend, it's yours. But don't hold your breath...

My guess would be on rarity, but oh I wish I could afford to get you either for a Christmas present, Pat...

Well, could have, I think, judging by the bidding time stamps...

Maybe you'll get lucky yet. ^-^ (And I too have no idea what's going on with the book world. I've heard of one of the books I own being sold for over 200 dollars on Ebay and it's a 2009 release! I wish that were *my* book on email. That'd make an awesome profit...)

For a second I thought you might have actually bought it! Ha! I'll find a Santa and sit on his lap for you if you think that might help get this in your stocking this year.
