Yeah, checked into that only 255 in the world have a copy and most have an absurd waitlist...also many have it on the "lost" list. Just wondering what the context of the book is? Must be very valuable.

WOW! valuable indeed! Check Amazon.com - preices range from $1,500 to $2,399! Now I am intrigued as well

Its just a collector's item. I wouldn't translate the $1500 price to the value of the book. It's just a rare book.

lol, I posted about this book on the bw forums and got one reply...so either people had no idea anything about the book or...well who knows. Try worldcat.org to check library databases to see where the nearest copy is. The results are often misleading, however, because the first 15 alleged nearest copies to me have been "lost and paid" (ie, stolen). The actual closest one to me is the LA county library (over 200mi away) and it is in the reference section and cannot be checked out. I called them and they said it is pretty common for people to come in and photocopy the whole book. Check out this article for more info http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/co ... 996085.htm

Unless you plan on stating a hedge fund I say no.
