Quite often I come across books in my travels that I simply can’t fathom. This is a case in point.
On the face of it, it would appear to be some sort of promotional item produced by the team for a purpose that escapes me but probably as a sup to the sponsors or possibly as a media information pack?
My “gut feeling” when coming to it in the listing box was it’s a £10 book. OK, but when I research it (Copac etc. etc.) it apppears to be uncommon. To the point that I can’t find another copy at all.
Does that make it valuable? Not sure. Again, gut feeling puts it in the £10 range — of interest to F1 collectors, possibly, I guess.
Further “price research” including auction records, current similar titles ad nauseum and… prices for later editions of what appear to be the same book range from $35 to a gob-smacking £200! This “internet pricing” has become a complete farce in my opinion.
Lowballers, highballers and guessers… I’m in the last category of course although I do know the value (not price, that’s not the point) of many books I come across. 99.9% of them are simply not worth buying (as a reseller that is) and finding that .1% is getting harder of course.
So, comments welcomed on your view as to this books value… in fact, for the most informed estimate and explanation I am offering a mug.
Not any mug though. This one has BookLovers.co.uk and a sweet heart on it…
