Excellent collection, Trotter. When my wife complains that I have too many books, I will simply point her at your collector's profile URL and that should keep her quiet about my measly collection for a few more years :)

I saw that one. Is it even possible to determine which edition that came from?



It would probably be possible to narrow it down based on the typeface of the GA&U lettering on the spine and the alignment of the three colours in the artwork which varies from impression to impression.

Definitely isn't from any of the first edition printings - can say that much.

These are some earlier numbers (from checking my purchase records), for what it is worth:

Vol. I:
2007 US$ 527

Vol. II:
2007 E201

Vol. III:
2007 £129 (Shrinkwrapped), E150 (not shrinkwrapped)


Shoulda paid less as it turns out. Volume 1 was quite hard to come by back then, though :) I'd say the price trend is downwards in real terms, and probably fairly static in purely numeric terms.
