At the UK event when you first went in, they had mainly trade copies with bookplates and a few Deluxe copies. They also had numerous copies of book volumes without bookplates and a supply of bookplates. So if you asked for a Deluxe version with a bookplate, they would put one in there and then.

This means that is pretty much impossible to say exactly how many of each exist. They had a lot of bookplates, and I think my guess of about 200 is probably pretty close. The first set of people into the store, such as myself, all bought 1 Deluxe and 1 Trade edition with bookplates, they stopped this after about the 15 person and just said that they could buy one copy only. I suspect that the later people in the queue only bought the trade version, because of the difference in price (£11.99 for Trade, £60 for Deluxe on the day).

The Trade copy on Ebay was bought by a family in front of me, who bought at least 5 copies of the Deluxe Version and 5 of the Trade (so I expect they have a few more copies to put on Ebay).

I am keeping both my copies though.

does anyone know just how many UK De luxes had book plates in them? was the 50 split equally among the Trade edition and the Deluxe?
or was there 50 of each? (or 200 as Trotter mentions)?

I emailed this to you at rowns.com as well.

Check out auction # 200101282215. It's a UK trade with a CJRT signed bookplate and Alan Lee's signature on the title page.

Last year I also emailed Lisa Star for back issues, and she didn't answered neither.

I will definitely take a look, it is all great information! I may play with formatting a bit and will definitely be asking for more information.
