    I've seen them advertised on eBay and RDU from time to time from $450 up to $600 depending on condition, pretty reasonable considering its been over ten years since it was last published, and I bought mine new at the time for around $250. prices should drop substantially once the new edition comes out which was supposedly meant to be around the end of this year.

    What's a signed hard cover copy of Graeme Gow's "Complete Guide to Australian Snakes" worth?

    2 people have tried to pinch it from me.

    I see there is one on an auction site with a starting bid of $350 that has no bids, so probably not worth as much as it would have fetched a few years ago.

    I actually have a mint copy of this (not signed) that I had expected would be worth a fair whack of money now, but I see copies going for auction at around $40.

  7. Around $600 if in good nick rams. When the 7th edition is released I imagine that price will fall significantly.

    * Edit, sorry just saw occipitallis post.

    On the database in some book stores, the 6th edition is listed as a "Final Edition". Just wondering how reliable the information regarding another edition being released?

    Ramsayi - Between $250 (rough field copy) to $500 (mint copy). There have been a lot of higher priced ones than this but they are generally advertised prices, not sold prices. A couple here and there a few years ago were rumoured to go for $800 but that's more heresay than anything I think.

    SteveNT - Probably around $100. Graeme was handy with a pen so they aren't too scarce.

    Dalius - Very reliable. It's coming, albeit slowly.
