Recently a signed by Steinbeck Tortilla Flat without dust jacket in less than 
very good condition and certainly not a first sold for $1,000 + 15% auction 
house commission. About a year ago In Dubious Battle, not a first in about 
very good condition with dust jacket sold for $150.... I told auction house 
representative I 
would pay about $6.00 for the book in that condition.  (Both sales at PBA 

As an aside I note that most Modern Library books in very good condition, 
common titles with dj,  are selling for about $10.00 or if better than Very 
good around $12.00. This is probably not unreasonable, since the current 
series (reprints) sell for $10 to $15 in used book stores. What is the 
experience of others in different parts of the country? However, on balance, 
ML books are now very hard to find.
