Could be, yes.
But it still isn't necessary to pay too much; last week I received to brandnew DA books from the McLaren company itself.
I send them an e-mail, waited a few days and ordered two books.
I paid GBP 59 + 15 (shipping) for each book, not that bad.
One book I'll keep in it's plastic (and dust cover) for the future, the other is for reading and dreaming

I didn't realise they were still selling them as new from Mclaren - makes those at 100+ on eBay seem slightly over-priced...

Could you add the email address you used to here so others can have the same fortune as you?

Off course I'll share it, but I can imagine they don't like if their personal e-mail adresses are on a public site.
For those who are interested; sent me an PM and I'll give you the right e-mail adresses.

I haven't seen one for a while - the 2 I've bought over the past year or so weren't from eBay or an on-line shop but through newly found friends

Still by Michael Cotton; It has 3 covers and is [super?] rare - I have only seen 6 to date [mind you, I only started looking about 5 years ago.....]
