I think that scarcity on its own is not particulary helpful. What does it 
mean first of all. Scarcity of the title whatever the condition? Scarcity in dust 
jacket? Scarcity of the first? Scarcity in relation to size of printing? 
Scaricty in fine condition? Scarcity signed. etc
Anyway, I think that scarcity on its own is rather irrelevant. What matters 
is scarcity in relation to demand. That is what determines price. A thing can 
be extremely rare, like one of a kind of something. But if nobody wants it, 
scarcity hardly matters.
