autographed copy

September 18, 2009

From Craigslist:

Autographed copy of Plato’s Republic 1st edition of The Republic signed by its author. There is of course a reasonable amount of wear and tear, (light highlighting and underlining, dog-eared pages, back cover missing, etc.), but it is in overall good condition considering its age.

    My favorite Craigslist ad so far:

    “Free built-in bathtub”

    Does the house come with it??

    Wow! Can you imagine how thick that signed first edition is. I mean, it would’ve been written on papyrus paper or something similar and I’m pretty sure having it scrolled in long hand would make it thousands of pages long (the paperback is over 500 pages). Why would they ruin it with highlighting, underlining, and dog-earing? They don’t deserve to own it…someone should definitely take it off their hands.

      dang it…there should be a question mark and not a period…”Can you imagine how thick that signed first edition is?”
