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!
