Thanks in advance for the appraisal.  Have the above books and excuse the necessity to abbreviate.   

First is High Fantasy by Jeffrey C. Dillow  published 1981, Reston Publishing,  hardcover, no jacket, colour picture of a figure with axe and a dragon on the front.
                          Then Authentic Thaumaturgy by P.E.I. Bonewits 1978 published by The CHAOSium. Soft cover, near digest size.

Finally,  Through Dungeons Deep by Robert Plamondon,  1982,  black hardcover, no jacket, published by Reston Publishing.  

Thanks again.

Mary

Hardcover High Fantasy is getting $20 to $30 - these are really quite sought after now so could go higher, however, missing the dust jacket will reduce the value

Through Dungeons Deep, $20 seems to be the usual going price.

I do not have an idea about the Chaosium digest.

Authentic Thaumaturgy usually sells well. $40+. Quite high for what it is and the amount that turn up on eBay, so no idea why it's that sought after.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Authentic Thaumaturgy is hit and miss.  There was one listed and relisted a couple times at $25 then $20 then $15.  I believe I finally bought it for $15.  The Chaosium version is a 2nd print of the book - a first print would probably get $40+.

Through Dungeons Deep is probably a $20 if in good shape.  The author recently reprinted the book and has been selling copies on Ebay and other places for $20 so it would be difficult to sell for more than that (although I think the reprint might be softcover).

Why did I think that someone else (not Chaoisum) published this version?

Maybe because both myself and Afterglow before me, listed Bonewitz as a seperate entity and didn't include him within our Chaosium listings. It's an error I never even noticed until now. Goes to show how little mistakes like than can propogate and have an effect on things.

Yes.  That one you can get really cheap if you are in the UK:

High Fantasy had a dustjacket?  I've a few copies of the hardcover and none ever sported a dustjacket (one I bought new nearly 20 years ago...)

You're perfectly right. I think I was looking at my 'Through Dungeons Deep' and had a brain fade. The last stages of a PhD do that to you.   :oops:

Isn't that a novel or a book of some sort? Not a game?

It is a role playing system, though quite simple. I wrote a simple description on the Wiki:
