It Pays to be Patient
Most of the books were in the three to five dollar range, with one being 31 cents. But one, The Vampires of Finistere, for some reason went on Amazon, Ebay, and ABEbooks for from $30 to $57 bucks. A bit expensive for a paperback. Maybe it was because of the Jeff Jones cover on the US edition, but whatever the reason it was more than I wanted to pay.
So I kept checking Ebay for Peter Saxon books and a couple of Days later someone put up a group of six for ten bucks. And lo and behold, one was the vampire book. Needless to say, I ordered them. They arrived today and the guardian book was in great shape. Several of the other books look fun too. So once again, patience and persistence pay off.
