Hey Steve, check eBay mate, there is a 1972 with a "buy it now" price of $23 + $10 postage from a seller in Gympie

Getting hard to find these by the look of it, and they are bloody expensive! $50-$100 seems about the market for the older ones.

When I was about 10 my Grandparents bought me one from a garage sale.

At the time I didn't think much of it, but since then I have come to value it as a reference tool.

When I saw this post I thought to myself...self, go have a look at what year/edition it is.

Turns out it's a 1978 edition and is in pretty good condition, binding attached and all!

hope you get one soon.

Hi Cathryn

I would certainly be interested in this offer. How much would you be willing to sell it for and where are you based?

I have a third edition (1975) signed by the man himself. I think I will hang onto it for now since they seem to be in demand. Hamish, she is asking $50.

Thanks Steve, I think I might take it! Will be a good use of the last couple of week's dunny cleaning payments

@rayke1938, I would love that offer. So kind of you. I will see if my dad if I can make it to Redland Bay though as it is quite a far drive (there and back is 80 minutes or so, which might be a bit busy).

Cheers Hamish

I have an autographed first edition. No dust jacket. I got to meet the legend a few years ago where he signed it for me. Oh just bragging not selling haha soz. 

I have a few other autographed ones too but this one is my fave. 

You can still purchase them and they will autograph them if you ask.

Hi Ray

Sounds great. The school holidays are ten days away (because there's a weekend in the middle), so sometime in there I think that could certainly happen  

I'm just focusing on al my school stuff right now until it's all over. Unfortunately my last exam is on my last day
