If I were you, I would go back to that store and take a very good second look for that third volume!

Subject: Shakespeare 2 Vol. Question

Last night I bought the 2 vol. Shakespeare set (Comedies and  
Tragedies).  I knew, when I stumbled on them (in great shape with  
almost perfect dust jackets) that I'd gotten lucky--but it wasn't  
until I got home and checked the Toledano guide that I realized how  
lucky I really was--I bought both for eight bucks each.  I thumbed  
through the Toledano guide and looked at Dogeared, but I haven't  
found anything that explains why the books are priced as they are.   
The titles aren't obscure, nor is this a gift setwere these editions  
just more scarce than the 6 vol. set (as I surmise), or are there  
other factors?  Any help on this question is greatly appreciated.
