Someone mentioned wanting one of these recently. I just saw this and thought I'd post it. It is that special edition of Roverandom (25 copies).

Seems to have been re-listed but at £150 higher starting price than 3 weeks ago.

While my feelings are much as Khamul's (the hardest finds are the ones I haven't found yet at right price and condition), my hardest that I have found was the large print 1975 edition of Farmer Giles of Ham.

I have a special (inexplicable) liking for large print editions and this is one of the prettiest (shown here next to a "normal" edition) with all the Pauline Baynes illustrations (just bigger).

Here is an interesting one, books wrapped in cling film (Plastic Wrap for some readers).

My view is that it provides zero protection as it is very easy to rip, but also because it bunches up, blurs the Dust Jacket.
