If Jimmy only knew ...

James Joyce was miffed to learn that the manuscript of Ulysses sold for less than the manuscript of Joseph Conrad's Victory. Imagine how annoyed he would be know how much first editions of his book are going for: Rarely read, but much valued.
I hope it's really not so rarely read. It's worth the effort of getting to know.
