Happy to hear you had a pleasant time with Serendipity. There's always a first time for everything.

I have to decline the offer to sell. That part of my collection is very, very dear to me. I will however keep an eye out for you.

Cheers
Hi Stephen:

I bought it new through Amazon in 1999 while I was in school. I think I paid about $30 for it.

There are a few local book stores you might try who do not necessarily post everything on Alibris or Abe Books:

Bibliomania (in Oakland): if they have it, it'll be clean and reasonably priced. I'd drop them a line first.

Moe's (in Berkeley): they have a lot of stuff, and things come and go rather quickly.

Treehorn Books (in Santa Rosa): It's hard to say what these guys have and don't have, but the selection tends to be center good, and the condition of materials is typically very good.

and finally

Serendipity (in Berkeley): the guy who owns the store is a real sphincter, and contacting him by email is a lost cause: you're just as likely to get Abe links to inferior copies as you are a rant about how he's the only real book-man left in the state. BUT, if you live in the area AND you're wily enough to make it through the entrance (because said owner might through you out just because) AND you have an afternoon to go spelunking, this is probably worth a look. Again, another warning: the owner organizes everything himself, and the pattern he uses is comprehensible only to him, and asking for help will likely get you tossed.

Let me know what happens.
