Good prices.

I actually have a first or second edition browns boundary gifted to me from my mentor. Not selling it. Just bragging, even if it's worth nothing!

My search right now is for Skelton.

I wish you the best on finding a copy at a reasonable price. Lexis® Law Publishing issued a second edition in 1997 and it sure wasn't in print for very long, unfortunately. I really wish they'd print another batch even though I have my own copy.

The worst surveyor is an engineer who thinks they are a surveyor; the second worst surveyor is an appliance operator.

Somehow I think the guy asking $3,214.79 is going to be waiting a while for a buyer

Lexis did a faithful reprint of the original at that time. I got one from them for $15. Same color red cover as the original.

There was also a 2nd edition made up about then. It has a green cover. They had a copy in the University of Oklahoma Law Library. It is something less of a book than the original.

Brown borrowed heavily from Skelton to write BC&LP and E&P.  You have those, you aren't missing much from Skelton.

It will sell for a couple hundred, anyway. The legend of 1001 lives on. There is a current edition of it sold under a slightly different name for less than half that.
