    Re: 1962 Practical Navigator

    I bought my second copy of a 1962 last month for $16.  I paid one year
    earlier for my first copy of a 1962 $15.
    I have seen this a lot as well.  A common one is for the 1977 edition to be
    in the $45-$75 range.  Although it was not printed in great quantities it is
    nevertheless easy to find and can be had for $20 if you look around a bit.
    A bit stranger is that I have found absolutely mint condition 1918 and 1937
    Bowditches -- on numerous occasions -- for $7!
    What it tells me is that many of these book dealers have no idea as to a
    book's worth and they will try and get what the market will deliver.

    Subject: [Nml] 1962 Practical Navigator
    Wonder if anyone on the list has run into this.
    I was at the "Book Baron's" in Fullerton today, looking for a copy
    of the "Practical Navigator" and found a 1962 edition for $95.00.
    I talked to the girl that worked there and she tried to tell me that
    that was the going price. Needless to say, I went down street to another
    used book store and picked up a 1966 corrected reprint of the 1962 edition
    for $15.00.
    How is it that some used book dealers that that 35 year old PNs go for
    $95.00? Were not talking 1862 now.
