As readers of my books know, hard cover Dennison Bogie Books are hard-to-find and desirable. The most desirable of all are those hard cover editions that were never processed through a library system. These "ex-libraries" tend not to bring top dollar because of the processing defacements sustained in the book. I estimate that if this same edition was not an "ex-library" copy, the ending price would have been between $300-400 given its overall condition.
