I am outraged - OUTRAGED - by this line of thinking!

(OK, I'm a bit bored at the moment, and have little else to occupy my  
mind. But seriously folks...)

Since the book doesn't carry the ML imprint anywhere in it (or so I  
am led to believe without having a copy here in front of me), I don't  
see how we can call it an ML rarity.  It's a weird RH sales  
technique, but part of a serious ML collection? I think not.

I suppose I'd sheathe my sword if we called it an ML curiosity and  
let it go at that, but no RIGHT-THINKING collector...
