Actually, I find in a quick search of bookfinder that used copies of
James run around $40, with two copies priced under $40, and new copies
run $40-$60. There are some outrageously priced copies of Keepers of
Light, true, but bookfinder lists some 65 copies of the book, at least
half priced under $50 and three priced under $40. So price should not be
a deciding criterion in deciding between them.

Between those two, my personal recommendation would be Crawford hands
down. But James is worth having as a second, if only for some of the
illustrations such as Galina's work on glass.
