You can buy one on ebay. Item number is 231462703625.

I think the seller is totaly dreaming.

Mine cost a lot less and is in much better condition and the seller needs to wake up as £195 is a plain and simple rip off price

Thank you all for the input.


I have gone ahead and ordered the Dinky Toys by Edward Force (7th edition) from Amazon. Brand new and $20 CDN including postage. I think that is a very fair price for a good pictorial reference. I will then hold off and save for a copy of Dinky Toys and Modelled Miniatures by Mike Richardson


 


As for that ridiculous Corgi Book price, there are sooooo many ebay sellers who dont check to see typical selling prices of similar products they are trying to sell.

People don't realize that the Great Book Of Corgi had a second print run that did not come in a box with the bus but was shrink wrapped with the pocket book that where sold through Ian Allen book shops here in the UK and there was a further printing in 2001 that didn't have a dust jacket as the cover images where printed directly onto the covers
Last Edit: 5 years, 6 months ago by michael77.

Mine has a big Gold Corgi Dog on an all read Book binding. It was printed in 1989 so a First Edition. Very well used and falling apart now. Binding off the pages but almost all pages are in one big lump. Just parts of the index at the back has come apart.
Well worth the $75 I paid Canadian for it and I sure have got my money's worth out of it so far and expect to for years to come. Thank you Marcel Van Cleemput. May you rest in Corgi Heaven

I paid 75 quid for mine and I got the original mailing box with it as mine is 237 as it says it on both the limited edition label and on the mailing box next to the address who originally owned it!
