I think the seller could stand to make at least $200 if they broke it up and sold it piecemeal (especially since there are two books in that bunch I still dont have).  Maybe sell the Encyclopedia Harnica's all in one lot.  Agreed though, the BIN is ridiculous.

Except that, like many Harn collections, it has all been disassembled.  I'm going to confirm with the seller, but I think what we're seeing is empty module covers and all the pages removed, punched, and placed in binders.  This was actually promoted as the way to do things in the early Harn days, so it's pretty common to big old Harn collections.

So, to a player, it could have some value, but to a collector, marginal.

And I even considered it for a moment as material to use for play, while keeping the collection stored away, but if I were going to do that:

1. I'd have to get a game going, and that has been really difficult
2. There are even more complete collections available
3. It would probably make more sense to spend the money on a scanner, and invest time scanning all my books, then I'd have everything on a laptop, which would be even easier for play

I asked:

To confirm what I'm seeing in the pictures, this is mostly empty module covers with all the pages removed, punched, and placed in binders?


Answer:

You are correct, but there are a few things still in their original covers, such as the Shorkyne Region, Pilot?s Almanac, HarnLore 10, The Staff of Fanon, 100 Bushels of Rye, Shek-Pvar magic rules and the Lyahvi Tome.



So that stinks, well, for me anyway.

Found it at a used bookstore today, we'll see if it sells. Noticed there are no copies on Ebay, Amazon, Noble Knight or Troll & Toad.

Not an RPG but if anyone is interested in Advanced Squad Leader this is an incredible bargain. (It is just a rule book)

It is legitimately hard to find and as such, that's a fair price.  Apparently someone else thought so too.
