Re: Unusual Items

Subject: Re: Unusual Items

The most unusual item that I have is my copy of the standard UK Children of Hurin, which I got from Foyles in London a week before the official release of the book.

Foyles must have had a about 30 copies of the book in the store which had been pulled from the shelves after HarperCollins found out they were selling them early. They were actually still in the store but had been turned around so you could not see the covers. I bought a copy took it outside and had a look at it, the first section of the book is bound upside down. I went back into the store and it looks like all the rest were the same.

I think that these books would have been pulped before the release 1 week later, so I suspect that my copy may be unique.
