I think the listing Clair is referring to is for a single copy. It might
have already been sold. The listings found using this website are from
dealers in old books, so frequently from any one dealer only a single copy
is available. Hoever, if the book is fairly common, it might be listed by
several dealers. My wife wanted a particular edition of the Divine Comedy
for Christmas and I found nearly 20 dealers, each of whom had from 1-3
copies in various conditions.
