They aren't First Editions. This is the first printed in Germany in 1923, in English, for American buyers. That makes it of historical value, and expensive.The ones you pay $75 for are reprints, not originals.

As for historical value, that price is understandable. But did anyone see the shipping price? $42 for a book!!!

Edit: Nevermind. My ebay was set for first class shipping lol.

I had the money previous, but it would have to depend on the condition of the book. I just purchased the 1994 reprint of the bookand the other one (The Total German Shepherd) like two months ago(?), but haven't had time to read either one what with school and work to sit down, get some paper out (want to take notes on things I don't understand, lol), and read both books in like a day or two.
