BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- Investors are willing to pay a lot for insights from Baupost Group's Seth Klarman, the money manager behind the famous value-focused hedge fund.

That's not limited to the management fees Baupost charges -- even Klarman's book commands a hefty fee by most hardcover standards. A copy of the out-of-print 1991 title Margin of Safety: Risk Averse Investing Strategies for the Thoughtful Investor will set you back between $700 and $3,000.

But there's a less pricey way to peer into Klarman's value investing methodology: Take a look at his 13F.
