I have one I bought at Bunch of Grapes way back when. I look at it everyday on the shelf above the computor and I get a warm feeling. Selling your copy must be very hard.

Since they printed the soft cover a few years ago, the hardcover price has fallen quite abit. I wish they would have let it be they would be worth a lot more...but I suspect Mrs. Post needed some more $. My signed one is not worth half of what I paid now...I picked up a near perfect (unsigned) HC on eBay for 35 bucks last year.

Interesting point. I have a soft cover that I bought in 1988 (publishing year) which is marked First Edition. Apparently they print both hard cover and soft cover at the same time.

No boat, back in the suds.
