| Keep searching! I remember I found one of those 1986 hardcover editions of Mayday in Canada. The guy was selling off unsold books from under his counter and one of them was the Mayday.
The fair dust-coverless Severn Iceberg copy would have been a good filler copy but for the money it seemed a little pricey.

So I'm guessing that the likelyhood of me ever finding a copy with a DJ & in reasonable condition for a sensible price is somewhere between 'Bob Hope' & 'No Hope'!!!!

|Did I tell you about the time a few years ago when I took time off work to bid on a Severn Iceberg as the auction was ending? I placed a huge bid with seconds to go on a mint copy and got outbid! I was prepared to eat baked beans for the next 12 months to offset the expense. The guy that put the book up for auction found it in a drawer full of kitchen utensils at a deceased sale in the UK. I think he started it at 10 pounds without knowing the true value.|

| Good Luck then, Marley
I have mostly Audio- books, it is so complicated to read with changing glasses all the time, I loved to read, but now the Audio- books are a better solution for me. If they are read by Scott Brick. But that is another Topic, I think

Not at all Juanita, I hope I'm going to run into a mint copy in a second hand bookshop oneday, almost mint condition, with DJ & only a dollar....I can but dream!!!
All my other 1st Edition UK hardbacks are absolutely mint (inc Pacific Vortex & Mayday). All have got there DJ'S, no scuffs etc.
Severn House Iceberg...one day you will be mine! Lol.

|Okay, Marley, I hope I didn`t make you feel miserable. But I would do the same....maybe you get another one in better shape, then it`s worth it|

Decision made, I'm going with you Juanita, i enjoy having books with the DJ...just seemed like too much money for a book with no DJ & not in great condition.
I hope i bump into another copy one day!!

|I don`t want to mix into this....actually....but, without the DJ?? I think I would not. At least not for that price. Sorry, guys...|

| I'm not trying to talk my way out of it but isn't some of the joy in having a good condition & a DJ? I'm still 50/50...just can't make up my mind!!!
Here's the pic that (with DJ) that was posted last year. One of the rarest Cussler books out there!
