The E-Sylum:  Volume 1, Number 10, December 4, 1998, Article 3

LIMITED EDITIONS  

  John Keele asked, "I have seen many ads for limited-edition  
  books.  Are these worth the increased price?  How few copies  
  need to be in existence before a book is considered 'rare'?"    

  My reply:  In numismatics, it doesn't take a lot of copies  
  for a book to be common.  1,000 copies of a Steven King novel  
  would be a rare edition, but in numismatic literature, that's  
  common.   300 might be "scarce"  100 or less would be "rare",  
  in my opinion.  

  I doubt there will be shortages of opinions among our readership; 
  what do you think?
