Since my return to the buying and selling scene I have noticed that there are quite a few 1/1 books out there with later impression jackets. I'm curious what this does to the collectibility of the book? It seems like the book would be worth the same as if it had no jacket at all. Anyone have an opinion? Thanks


Yes, worth the same as an un-jacketed copy unless done by the publisher. That said, I have taken a perfect ex-libris jacket and mated it with a matching book (that had no jacket) to produce a combination that is perfectly correct and matching. I think the only problem is when the bits don't match.
