Is that book and subject something that is of interest to him or would it just be special because it came from you? If it's the latter then I would sell the item and get him something that truly hits home for him and comes from you. If the subject, or just old early edition books in general are his thing, then you can't beat that for a double-whammy gift.

Sell the book for thousands and buy rare Intellivision games that you can play with your buddy; then you both win!
Seriously, though, I am confused as sounds like you sell the book and make a "hefty" profit in both scenarios so am not sure where the dilemma lies? I am assuming that in the first one you sell to your buddy for a much cheaper price? Well, I suppose that depends on how badly you need the money versus strengthening the friendship with further generosity towards him. Sounds like you have plenty of money saved up so perhaps money is less of a concern for you but I obviously don't know all of the details. If this friend has been a good and true friend; someone who has stuck by you through good or bad decisions for years and would drop everything to come help you out of a jam if you really needed him, then no amount of money can buy that and I would sell him (or just give him) the book immediately if he wanted it. If he is just kind of a little more than an "acquaintance friend" as you have known each other for so long then I suppose it depends on how generous you feel.
Either way, it sounds like you will make a profit in the end so why not sell to your buddy and take care of your friends because that's what life is all about!
