Don AND Alice would probably be good sellers with our without
a DJ. You have material on Alice on Dogeared, but maybe you
need a page on Don (why so valuable - mention the Dali thing,
maybe the later reprint of the ML ed.). Buckram editions (not
x-library) (and the link to that part of Dogeared) might be
mentioned here also.

It may also be worth noting that WHO is selling the book
matters; known trustworthy ML sellers will probably get
more $$ than general sellers when they are selling similar
ML items. Not much one can do about this.
