A pretty impressive Malleus Maleficarum on ebay:

You have to stop with the expensive ancient occult book fetish Frank. Where is it really taking you? This is like when I used to look at Chanel handbags on ebay for $800.00 and bid on them when drunk. You talked me off that ledge and I would like to talk you off this one. It's become a form of porn, a VERY EXPENSIVE one at that. So far you have been strong but you know -the more you fixate on these tomes, at any point you are like 2 pints away from bidding 2500 euros on some decrepit manuscript that may or may not be real. I mean, you saw the Ninth Gate! Let caution be your watchword!

You might be able to trade some MTX test presses for it, I'd ask them...

$2500 is actually a pretty good price for that book. I've seen them go as high as $10,000 on occasion. If it weren't tax time, I'd be tempted to bid on it myself.

Naw. It turns out that a Revenge Is Sweet... test pressing went to me on ebay for under 15$ about a year ago.

That's depressing. Thanks a lot, Mr. Saunders.

I heard they sold more Test Presses of "Revenge Is Sweet..." than regular LP's?!? Is that true?

i've got a test pressing of the original "everybody's entitled to their own opinion". oh, yeah. ... a classic that sometimes gets lost in the shuffle of other, fine, mtx records.
