Isn’t the price a little high? One could get a copy for around 60 or 70 euros elsewhere on the internet?

I researched prices on discogs, eBay, etc, when I first posted this for sale and the lowest price at that time was around $200. Where are you seeing it listed for 60 or 70 euros? Are you sure those listings are the same edition as this one? This is a copy of the nice, larger (12” x 12” box) original edition. I think there was a cheaper edition released a few years ago in a smaller no-frills package. That edition does sell for less but is not the same quality as this larger edition. Thanks.

Discogs for example. Median price for the set is around 60 euros. Have to say that most sellers are above that price.

 I checked discogs after seeing your post and did not see any sets for sale at 60 or 70 euros. There is a less expensive set listed for sale in Austria but that one lacks the box and book. And there is a set listed in France for around $125 USD but it is only a Very Good copy and, when shipping to the U.S. is included, I believe the price would be above my asking price. Median sales price on discogs is a useful starting point but one has to be careful in using it because it reflects past sales and not current value. It is more useful in pricing still in print items than for out of print sets, whose scarcity and price may swing a bit over a few months or year. For example, a hypothetical set that sold for $125 a year ago may now be scarcer and sell for much more. Just my thoughts. Thanks for letting me know about the concern regarding my price but, after looking at discogs and eBay today, I think my $160 price is a fair price for this 15 CD set that is in mint condition, out of print, and getting scarcer.  But I will definitely monitor pricing trends on the secondary market and will be amenable to adjusting my price downward in the future if that is how the market is trending. I recently had sone interest for this set on an audiophile forum of which I am a member but nothing definite yet. Thanks again. I appreciate your feedback.

Did not know that. No harmful intentions, and I am sure pglbooks knows that. Did not mean to question anything.

I saw pglbooks bumped a couple of times and wanted to help.

Someone should grab this. It is worth the money. This was one of the box sets that set the standard for Mosaic and others. Sound is good, Keepnews' recollections are a nice read. Everything in one place. I never regretted buying it back then and pull it out regularly.
