I don’t think so Jim, I messaged him and he said they were for his bureau for future reference, bit strange to spoil a book like that then ask £100 for it? I might be wrong though?

Yes but they never sell, people see those and suddenly think theirs are worth mega bucks, but been a couple on lately for £60 and haven’t sold.

I bought my copy from Coch Y' Bonddhu books less than ten years ago, in hardback, for less than £30, if memory serves me right. Perhaps the one referred to in the thread opener is a first edition/ author signed/ or something else that makes it unique? Otherwise, its a rip-off!
(Never was much good at Welsh spellings).

Same as Wobbly Face, wouldn't pay more for it.
I did notice on a previous post, that the book was actually worth less if it had Mike's signature in it ?

He relisted it at a lower price and he’s now got a bid of £50.
