One problem for those who speculate in rare books is that sometimes when the value of an out-of-print book goes off-scale, the copywriter holder reprints it.

It might seem expensive, but given that Winnogrand is dead and there's probably not going to be a re-issue of this book in the foreseeable future, I bet this book will triple in value in 10 years. I'm not an expert in book collecting by any means, but I've seen this happen to a few different books.
