This is one of four POME that i know of up for auction, and this one and the one Uruloke posted are the only priced copies. Now i know it's a question as old as time on this site, and probably run into the ground, but what does an intact price do to the value of POME since it had a print run in the 2000's and as far as i can calculate only 2 out of around 8 offered this year have had a price. i also saw one that was price clipped somewhere...
The unpriced copies have been going for around 250 pounds, i'm curios to see what the priced copies go for...
And Stu, i'm curious how much your priced copy feels like it's worth after bringing the Lotus home
Thanks everyone

I happened upon this while browsing ebay.de. Just came in today and is in pretty good shape (for the $20 i would've been happy with a beat up ex-library )

Interesting thought Jeremy. I actually bought it off eBay a few years ago thinking it was the UK edition, being that it was printed by HC. Jeremy, do you happen to know-how many different "geological versions" HC printed of CoH?I just always assumed HC printed for the UK and HM for the US (lately at least), and have been ignorant of other versions.
Stu, what does your Australian version look like (size, color of boards, price etc)?
Thanks

Indeed it is what I'm talking about Stu. Thanks, I was afraid my book got left in a hot mail truck for too long or something. And actually, until I bought this signed copy, I thought the HC edition I had was the UK version, I probably should have found it odd that it had a price in US dollars...which is $10 more than the HM copy I have.

Hi, i recently purchased a 1/1 HC CoH signed and dated by Alan Lee. Previous to this book i had the deluxe, super deluxe, 1/1 HM and a second printing HC printed and bound in the USA. I've noticed a few things when comparing these different copies, which gives rise to a few questions. First thing i noticed about the signed copy was that it was much heftier than my other two regular copies, much more like the deluxe edition. Second thing i noticed was that the book was either bound extreamely tight or the book has gotten very hot and has somewhat warped the pictures (just curious if anyone else's copy is similar to this). Another thing i was curious about is why HC also printed copies in the USA for sale in the USA? The second printing that i have seems to be very cheaply made, which is why i was suprised at the weight of the signed copy, and is taller than the HM edition. Thanks for any help!
