What book/set in your collection was the hardest to obtain?

For me, its probablly the Ballantine Paperback Reprint Edition from 1986 and 1987

Open in new window


While I have much rarer books in my collection they were easy to get. It was strangly hard for me to find a collectable copy of this set with a good box and no cracked spines.

How about you? What was a challange for you to find?

Ah, then clearly Pauline did cross the Atlantic in her later years. I never knew that.

I also enquired about the book and the seller's reply to me was:

"The signature is genuine, as the books were signed in the editorial offices of Random House."

The exact words used to me were
I used to work for RHCB and received this signed copy from a friend who worked in publicity and oversaw the book signing of this title.

Just one thing, though: Roccondil writes -

"I was told by the vendor that he used to work at Random House Children’s Books and it was given to him as a gift by another employee that worked in the publicity department there and who had been at a book signing."

This brings up an interesting question: I'd always had the notion that Pauline Baynes didn't do book-signings; or am I wrong. ?
