Thirsty for knowledge, or a Royal Enfield?

His 1907 copy of the Encyclopedia Brittannica, in the family since it was new, is up for sale. If you want it, it will cost you $850. OR you could trade your Royal Enfield Bullet 500 motorcycle for it.

That's the offer from the seller in Western Washington, who writes, on CraigsList:

"Almost 5 feet of world knowledge! This complete edition has been in the family since 1907. There are some water stains on some of the covers. This happened in the move from Oregon to Washington 30+ years ago. No mold. No torn pages. No writing inside. Leather bound. Colour - Maroon/Black - Gold embossed.The binding from the paper pages to covers is very good to excellent...

"I am not interested in trading (unless it involves a Royal Enfield 500 Bullet in which case I'll throw in my high school diploma... used very little)."
