the energy of slaves

Post by woody » Thu Mar 01, 2007 3:49 pm

i want to get a copy of energy of the slaves.
allot of independant sellers are lisiting it on but i dont understand some are listing it as in good 2nd hand quailty for £0.48 & £1.50 and others say its of a similar quality and are listing it as £10.00 right up to £30.00.
Who should i trust, is there a better way to buy this book?

Most of world's used books shops are gathered around - I got all my Cohen books from that place (and most of others I'm using for my studies).

There are 81 Energies, most of them very cheap (4-5 UK pounds, UK Jonathan Cape edition). I suggest you this one as it is cheapest original edition (McClelland's) in very good condition. I prefer the original editions, but Cape's also OK as it's Leonard's original spelling. (US editions have "corrected" British spelling to the American. Stuff like favourite/favorite, color/colour etc.)

Your choice could also depend on where you live for delivery time and costs. A seller in your own country being faster. Abebooks usually gives a good description of the books and their condition.
