Re: Pricing around Antique books...some advice

I have noticed that in the Toronto area people try to flog what they consider antique books for outrageous prices. Check ABE Books online, as they deal with rare books and the like. for example, one school book published in 1948 was offered at $50. I checked and you can get the same thing on ABE Books for $7 plus $5.99 shipping! Some are offered under the price too. Hope this is useful.
