I would like to buy "The Apocalypse: The Perennial Revelation of Jesus Christ", by Eugenio Corsini. However, it's being sold at extortion prices. Before I try inter-library loan, does anyone know of where to buy it at a reasonable price?

I'm a long time book buyer and was in the OOP business for a while. I checked my usual sources (likely you looked in similar places). Looks like you will have to get lucky. It can happen. I picked up a rare C.S. Lewis 1st ed. around 48 years ago, for $1 at a sort of large garage sale for books. I was lucky. It can happen.

Thanks. Just to make sure I covered all the bases, what are your sources?

Those prices are rather high. I wonder if they're actually selling them or if someone accidentally listed it high and the other sellers just copied.

Bookfinder.com is the most inclusive I know of. It rolls up a couple of other megasites, like Abebooks and Alibris.

I's not the first time I tried to buy a book at those prices. I tried finding a book by Celine Martin (St. Therese's sister). I finally found it at Amazon.uk that priced it at $20.

That the way to go.

I watched a book I wanted, with only a few offerings, which was listed in the $200+ plus range, for a couple of years. One day it appeared for $40. Mine. Patience and luck. Doesn't always work, but often does.
