Popular topic you got here loonka *chuckle*

I think sometimes when you put up a question relevant to every members book routine, a quick (minimum thought) answer isn't always possible --and so you sometimes don't get any response at all.

I have very few books sitting horizontally; I don't have too many doubled up either. The order & layout for me (presently) is about preserving condition e.g. most red (or anything close to red) are turned jacket spine in; some have facing books (irrelevant, non collection books) in front of them too. I have big books with big books; small with small. I tend to arrange by title; and by date within those categories. Although, all the recent deluxe styles are together for some reason. With the shelving courtesy of Ikea, some elements of arrangement are driven by how bowed the shelves are becoming too... & so one could rabbit on...

Ack! I don't have to look, because I can tell by the silver circle 'round the title, and the lettering, that this is a fourth impression of the 1st ed. FR.

What a state to let a book - any book - get into!

If one is going to get all pedantic (as I frequently do...) about chronological 'assembly' of these quasi-publication CoH states, then one would need to ask --why would anyone want a US deluxe copy with one of these bookplates?

The assembly of this 'state' (I use, or perhaps mis-use, this term loosely) post-dates the London (Waterstones) and NY (Barnes & Noble) events by several months. None of these copies, whether assembled as intended, or fraudulently assembled, occurred at publication time. Therefore, why the appeal in 'making' one, or buying one?

By all means, if you're a crook, peal one from a UK standard Hb, and re-stick it into a UK deluxe --at least that makes sense.

All right, looks like both bugs are fixed for now. I have more ideas to make this more robust over time, so let me know if you have thoughts on making it better and I will see what I can do.

Bug reports are of course welcome as well!

This seller has some other "well-loved" items for sale as well

I completely agree with garm's comment

by garm on 2011/1/24 19:52:46 There are some - not on this website, but some folk on another website on which I lurk - who would call a sorry-looking book like that 'well-loved'! If it were a horse or a dog, folk would be up in arms!
