Freedom is a Two-Edged Sword and Other Essays Oriflamme 1 Jack Parsons
 
Now listed on eBay at lowered price, in the last 24hrs of auction. Offers will be considered. £190 + P&P int £35
 
Bibliographic Details Title: Freedom is a Two-Edged Sword and Other Essays Oriflamme 1 John Whiteside Parsons Publisher: Thelema Media, L.L.C. Publication Date: 2001 Binding: Soft cover Book Condition: Good Edition: Edition Sold as per images, no returns accepted. I mail to the address that is reged with eBay, so make sure that you have your address correct before placing a bid. Parson's essay Freedom is a Two-Edged Sword is a brillant work on individual liberty and how it can be realised by all. Alot of what Parson's has to say is in the tradition of John Locke, but written in a style more appealing to today's reader. Written in the 1940's his insight into moral, religious, social and sexual issues is still very relevant today.

Alright mate? How's Oireland?

 

Not being aggressive here just curious, but (hypothetical question here) WTH happened to the market?  This book was a Christmas gift from my parents I dunno....5(?) years ago (I haven't read it yet- shame face) and I think they only paid about $20 USD.

 

'Dang'  

Good luck with your auction!

 

I just paid (shame face #2) about $260 USD for a CD from a French Black Metal Artist..And it just came out like a month ago.......

WTH happened to the market?

Um, it's called massive inflation - apparently hitting the USA right now very hard (ouch). Two-Edged Sword appeared first as a Teitan Press hardback - for ~$55. I didn't know a paperback had been issued.

My first book preceded Jack's. New, it was $45. Now I see you can get one for only $185.

Or how about Behind the Veil? You can get it for $90 at Amazon in hardcover, and only $61 for the softcover ... new!

Um, these same versions, new, can be purchased at Lulu, $44 hard, $22 soft. So this is a documented case of some seller on Amazon who is re-selling books, and tacking on a hefty profit ... when the book is available for half, or one-third the price.

I don't think this is illegal. The seller would call it "good business sense."

What in Heaven happenened to the [book] market?  It's like the stock market - it is volatile and one could lose their shirt or make a bundle, depending on the degree of their insight and ability.

Hey @christibrany 

Ireland is good Brother, getting into winter season and recoiling back into our lairs, to look inwards, awaiting the Spring to blossom! 

Yeah, prices are ridiculous, so I normally see what the lowest price is on Bookfinder, ABEBooks or eBay and have my price lower than that. I am feeling my need, for the library dissolving away. Selling books that might be worth a bit but I never really look at. Living is expensive these days!
