I just bought a copy of BOLT2 and the book is in great condition, the jacket is in good condition but has a lot of tanning to the under side. Can anyone explain the greenish color to the gold lettering? thanks


It is a very common problem with BoLT 2. I have seen more copies where the gold effect has oxidised than not. Seems to be a problem that does not affect any of the other volumes.

Since my return to the buying and selling scene I have noticed that there are quite a few 1/1 books out there with later impression jackets. I'm curious what this does to the collectibility of the book? It seems like the book would be worth the same as if it had no jacket at all. Anyone have an opinion? Thanks


Yes, worth the same as an un-jacketed copy unless done by the publisher. That said, I have taken a perfect ex-libris jacket and mated it with a matching book (that had no jacket) to produce a combination that is perfectly correct and matching. I think the only problem is when the bits don't match.

Funny you should say that, as when I got home today, I found that my copies of Peoples had been out for a drive. The priced one was in the drivers seat, obviously...

So you all are not going to be bidding on this copy huh?!


Nope, already got a priced one and an unpriced one. I think that is me done with copies of PoME!
