The book world is odd that way. there is a certain clientele which will pay the 850. for that book if it is bought from the "right" bookseller. In other words, 2 booksellers can have the same book with the same attributes. One will have a long literary legacy of high quality rares book sold to that clientele and get 850. The other will be the bookstore down the street and he will get 400. Or maybe best to sell his book to the other high society dealer who will the sell it for 850.
My specialty in the book world is to find the rare lit at a low price and sell as high as I can. It's all about knowing the right people.
I am very good at it. If you ever need rare lit, give me a holler. I have 18 years of very successful experience. Once bagged a archive of 63 document file boxes of lit. What a treasure it was to read and study. Then I resold it. After first finding there was a duplicate archive at the Ohio State Archive.
