I'm always amazed at how our society places dollar values on things..... Tonight I had a great "score" at a used bookstore, getting two rare volumes that normally command ebay prices well over $100 each. One is the long OOP Dan O'Neill "Collective Unconsciousness of Odd Bodkins". The other is a first (public) edition of T.E. Lawrence's "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" from 1935. Odd Bodkins commanded exactly twice what the Lawrence book commanded: $20 vs. $10. My nephew's fiancee has a Czech heritage and once told me she wanted to read up on the subject. When I found out she didn't know who Thomas Masaryk was, I got her a bio. of same and also found an actual Masaryk autograph on ebay - for $50. The autographs for mediocre pop stars and football players go for many times that much. Browsing places like Amazon will reveal that classical CDs go for considerably less than pop music CDs. Is it right for me to be so confused about this?
