Baggy! You spelled Anne wrong! Of course so did the silly bookseller!

Anyway Larra (and anyone else that is wondering), this book, often called the Hargreaves bibliography, is a must-have for serious collector's of Anne's books. Not so much because it needs to be a part of one's collection, but because it is hands-down the best bibliography out there of books published through 1992, covering all English and foreign language editions (with minor exceptions) as well as supplementary materials like the sheet music of "Menolly's Twiddles". Without this book, the true collector is unlikely to be aware of all the items that exist to be collected!

$100 is a fair price for this book, though lucky collectors can find it for less if they search long and hard enough. I actually have an extra copy for sale if anyone is interested (pm me to discuss price).

Another copy of this book is available from WYSIWYG books, a bookseller which is currently partnered with Anne to sell off some of her extra copies. They're actually selling a galley/proof of the book, which is said to be one of only eight copies and is priced at $150.

Quite a number of other copies can be found for sale on Abebooks, and probably more if you search through www.bookfinder.com, with prices varying from $95 to nearly $200.
