I can get a five gallon glass carboy around here for $15, so at least that price is decent.

The bottles aren't necessarily a bad deal, but you could get a 12 pack of Saranac for not horribly much more and make the bottles yourself.

The rest of it, I have no clue...

offer him $200 for the whole lot.......he may be ready to unload everything for 1 price.
I know the bottles are $10 per case at the LHBS. You could probably find the carboys cheaper somewhere but everything on the list looks like a decent price. All of that would make a nice upgrade to your brew system.......

One problem I see is quantity is not mentioned:

12 oz bottles in cases 4 bucks a case -- how many cases?
quarts in cases 8 bucks -- how many quarts?
5 gall glass car boys 10 bucks --how many carboys?
5 gall soda kegs 10 bucks -- how many corny kegs?
