You make a good case, and I agree with you, with some provisos
  1. There must not be readily available second-hand copies. e.g. if second hand copies either can't be found, or are going for more than full retail of a new hardback.
  2. You express your interest in a new print run/edition to the author or publisher.
  3. If the books becomes available again due to a new print run or edition, you buy a copy.
