Game of Tarot at reasonable price!

Postby Ross G. R. Caldwell on 11 May 2008, 15:33

Through http://www.bookfinder.com I notice that amazon.co.uk has a bookseller with a copy for 80 euros (I guess, US $120) plus shipping, in case anyone is in the market -
http://www.amazon.co.uk/o/ASIN/07156101 ... 8V218YP1R2

This is a very reasonable price!

I looked for years and only found the typical US $300 price-range. If you look on bookfinder.com, there are even places in the US selling it for 670 EUROS!!! that is insane.

This means that all one has to do is set oneself a range, and look periodically. I hope someone snatches this one up. As for me, I've still about 80 euros earmarked for tarot/playing card/game books, and I'm being stingy with it.

Before Christmas, Michael noted a copy of Moakley for sale, and when I looked I found almost every copy was reasonably priced, and, as I had some money, I began a spending spree on long-sought-after books... the last installment being a couple of weeks ago, after about 20 books.

There is nothing left in my price-range (Patch, some odd reprints from the 16th century, Hind, etc. being just out of my reach), but I keep an eye out.

Ok...who bought it?

There's another at 75 GBP.

That's a spa treatment. Hm. Long book or massage and manicure?

Eve (Moonbow* at Aeclectic) bought that copy.

£75 is still very good; I'd have paid that without thinking (my set threshold was about 120 euros, but I got it for 50 euros from Norway - plus 30 euros postage!)

Looks like you'll have to opt for the spa treatment with massage and manicure, Debra - it's gone, it seems!

If you go to the NEXT price, you can get THREE spas with massage and manicure :)

This is simply a catalogue listing, rather than an online copy of the book.

It WOULD be nice to have an online copy but, as far as I'm aware, such is not (yet) available.
