Gatsby Sale

I know most ML collectors understand this, but it should be repeated. While 
there is nothing wrong with an ML first in a later DJ, be aware that such an 
item is generally worth considerably less than the same book in a first issue 
DJ(unless any jacketed copy is rare- e.g. Boni and Liveright DJs). Condition 
aside, the prices for the Gatsbys in later DJs available online appear to be 
way above market. Of course, if anybody had forecast in 1992 that a Gatsby in 
the first issue DJ would sell for over $1,200 within ten years, I would have 
thought that individual was crazy. I guess you never know.
