I recently bought a book as a text for one of my classes - Edward
Wilson's The Diversity of Life. The only thing is, I didn't realize
there was a less expensive version of the book I ended up with.
Instead of getting the $19.00 paperback, I wound up with the $68.95
(that's according to the back of the book $49.99 US) commerative
edition complete with 65 minute VHS tape and autograph.
Its brand new - I haven't read it and the tape hasn't come anywhere
near to a VCR - the only thing that renders it "used" is that the
plastic shrink wrap is missing.
I'm not a natural sciences major and so I'm not estatic about having
such an elaborate version of the book. And, since I'm a student my
only concern is to save some money. I made the mistake to purchase it
and now all I can do is hope to sell it.
I'm asking $40.00 (Cdn) + postage O.B.O. I would like to get a
decent portion of what I paid back. Again, the book is in perfect
condition (though the package's exterior casing is imperfect due to
what I would call shoddy manufacturing) Its still an amazing deal!

Remember -- its autographed AND since he did win two pulitzer prizes
I'm sure it may be a collectors item someday soon.
