Just checking in to publish a quick note to my fellow booksellers.
While listing a signed Franklin Library Edition copy of Drury's Advise and Consent this morning I noticed that reading copies, mass market copies and nearly all editions of this 1959 political novel are fetching $20 and up. Expect copies in hardcover formats, early printings and quality condition to fetch closer to $50, especially when selling via multiple outlets or in an Ebay store with Make an Offer.
This is a book I have come across hundreds of times in the field, and is one that I passed up most of the time because it seemed too common to be worth bothering with. Perhaps I am mistaken, but I think that the current values may be being influenced by the fact that there does not appear to be an in print version in any format.
