I recently researched one of my moon books and found that it could be quite valuable. It is Mapping of the Moon Past and Present published in 1974 and is in nearly mint condition with foldouts and a post card. I was pretty shocked when I saw what the asking prices are on Amazon. Does anyone know WHY it has such a high asking price? Mine is in better condition than any of these. Woah!

Some algorithms say make price so much higher than the next highest price. If two requests are like these it can spiral to almost inifinity or what they set the max limit to be. However, just because price is high doesn't mean there is any demand at that level.

I'm not sure but I think there were other astro related topics in a series and this was no 50 in the series but that seems like a lot of other topics. Uncertain and I should look into it further....
