aia wrote in Interesting Non-TSR Items Currently on eBay:A basic question first: a book with a print run of one copy is a book or a manuscript?

I'd say that was a pre-publication if it was ever published. Or a printer's proof. Of maybe just a homebrew copy of some guy's would be publication career.
I consider 'manuscript' to in the digital era to be what is produced before the production layout stage of the product, with maps (as they are often critical to the product) but sans artwork etc.
The problem with these sorts of things in digital form is anyone can print 12 pages of typeset script on a home printer and staple it.
Some are notable and build careers ala James Raggi's Random Esoteric Creature Generator or Fantasy Fucking Vietnam, but most are just dead one-off products in the wilderness like Loki's Wine or Taracina Port (Which Kent no doubt will still be running eBay ads for and still ready to run you off a copy of $25)

... so if you missed them, they'll be up again next month.
Next time he can say, 'this is the only copy I have.'

Wow that strikes me as a stout price! Had no idea the blue foiled ones sold for that much (I just have a regular one). Jeff puts out great stuff though.

I like small press stuff.  I collect small press stuff.  I have no interest in Santa themed RPG stuff - interesting the lines we draw.

Northwest Frontier Map Set by Adventure Games for the World of Tekumel. This 2nd print came rolled up inside a foot long tube. And yes there are 1st and 3rd prints of this item. And a gazetteer that was sold separately.

Really?  If so, I'm interested in potentially any of the items you have in stock.
