I've been looking for this book by Elmer Keith for some time. What is for sale is far too expensive, but I learnt that a digital version has been available online for some time. It has been removed since.
Would anyone have a copy?

Thanks,

Jambat

I have a hard cover copy of this book that I would probably sell.  I did a quick look on ebay to get an idea of value and yikes!!  Are people really paying that much?  If you are interested, let me know and we'll see what we can work out.

HOLY COW, John. I just did a search also. Thinking I better dig my copy out of the box-o-books & put it into the safety deposit box.

My autographed hard cover edition was bought directly from Elmer by my sister-in-law for a Christmas present to me. He signed it on November 29, 1981, just a few weeks before he had his debilitating stroke. 

My most treasured book.

I have two copies of this book and neither is for sale. Keith’s autobiography is well worth reading, and I doubt we will see another like Elmer anytime soon. 
I bought an unsigned first edition with a decent dust jacket a few years ago for $100. I gave the one I owned and the one my father owned to my sons. I recently bought number 381 of 500 of the signed copies at a price I am trying to forget.
Interestingly and totally unconnected to the book purchase, I just acquired a nice pre-29 5-screw .44 magnum - my heirs will dispose of this and the signed book.
In addition to collecting fine firearms, I also collect fine copies of signed books that interest me.
Considering the interest this thread has engendered, a thread category for collectible books might be a good idea.

I'm glad I blew some dust off of Mr Keith's statue.

I saw a copy for $110 at Abe's books. That's not too bad.

To clarify, I assume you mean abebooks.com.  A great resource for used books.

Is this group willing to share books like a library? I have some interesting ones but I recall Dr Wong had a set of lenses for helping shooters vision but a bum borrowed them and refused to return them. That would be bad for books too....

Bruce, you trying to give bums a bad name??
That guy was a thief, Calling him a bum is an undeserved upgrade.

That eBay book sold yesterday for $102.50.  The seller claimed it was purchased new and had been sitting on his shelf ever since.
