O... yes Findegil! Is indeed correct!! Thanks for that... was mixing up the two events. Guess posting in a hurry is never a good thing. Thanks for clearing that up!

Did you ever find that letter by chance ? :

'I seem to remember seeing a letter sold with one of these signed books a few years ago. It was from Allen & Unwin to a bookseller and said something along of the lines of: If you order a certain number of copies you will get a signed one for free.
I will try to dig it out. '

Thanks

I assume you mean this letter.

I wonder if it really had gone astray or that they wanted another signed copy?

The letter does not state a number that were sent out, does anyone know how many copies were actually provided to booksellers? i.e. was it 100 as in my original post?

mmmmmmm
a cunning plan indeed
I also understand signed copies went to sellers who placed the top 10 largest pre publication orders - anyone ever heard of this?
