Speaking for myself, I actually do (for some unknown reason within) like a lower number and am indeed prepared to pay more for lower numbers.

When I started collecting, I convinced myself that the number did not matter, but over the years, I became more and more attracted to the lower numbers. Just part of the collecting obsession for me I suppose.

What I have tended to do is to buy any copy of a limited edition to have one in the collection and then try to get a lower number (and sell the original purchase).

Hi Trotter,

I may not be remembering correctly, but I think that at one point, David Miller had the original. And I think he subsequently sold it on. But I may not be correct on this.

Indeed I have a (very convincing) copy of the same signed note that was included (as a free token) with a book I purchased a few years ago.

Ahh Yes, the rare and elusive 1972 Seventh - Sixteenth - First Impression of the Third First Edition 1937.

Don't think I have one of those in my collection at the moment. Will most likely bid a small fortune to acquire this one.....

I actually ordered a copy (2 Volumes) from Amazon.ca last June (to ship to Ireland) along with a few other books. It Shipped in 15 days and was sent via DHL (though I only chose standard shipping).

Worked out much cheaper getting it from Canada, even though the UK is next door. At the time it was not available on any other of the Amazon sites, but in the last month is now available on the Amazon UK site.
