Hey...

Just curious if the valuation on the site is accurate for this book. I'd say my copy is in very good condition, maybe better (not minty, definitely.)

I've only opened it to check what printing it was and it had the Maine address.

The valuations are fairly accurate, but the current trend for these is a bit higher than the moderated valuations on the Acaeum.

Can you describe what's going on in the bottom right corner?  Is that on the plastic or on the cover?  Is it mildew or a stain?  Is there any staple rust or interior markings or defects?

If VG condition, I would guess that this would sell at auction for $450-600.

The marks are not mold or mildew; they are a smudge from either ink or graphite, and are on the book. It was actually worse before I took it out of the bag so I think it was transferred from the previous owner.

The staples are not shiny so certainly not new. They are somewhat rusted -- not sure how to describe it but they are not leaving stains inside, through a quick flip.

Other than that, no idea since I haven't actually gone through the book in detail.

I just looked at the price on the site and thought I'd see if mine might be anywhere near it.

Maybe the condition is not "very good." Either way, still appears worth more than I paid which all I care about.
