When was your copy printed?

I don't think the fact that it's for sale on Amazon at 2800 is a useful guide to how much it's worth.

Sorry Frank the Punter, if you don't know when Extreme Rock, the most well known climbing publication ever, was printed, or what it's worth, then I can't help you.

Also, your trolling game is weak.

Also, it sold in a day.

Also, boom.

Frank can sniff out a bargain anywhere and that was not a bargain. We, the readers made it valuable and when a pal hides it in the attic we respect neither the book nor the pal.

I was asking because I (perhaps mistakenly) thought there'd been a couple of editions. Pointing out that a price of 2800 on Amazon isn't a good guide to the book's worth isn't "trolling"...it's a fact - and it's good to understand the difference. This is a strange book - it gets such high prices but it isn't really all that good, but that's what rarity & hype can do I guess.

Well done you for selling it in a day ("boom" - what does that mean?)
