Ooh nice. Thanks for sharing. I’m glad I didn’t spend money on the crap HOME set.

Do you know when the card is charged? I’ll have to use a Visa debit card so I’m wondering how they handle cancellations/refunds as I’m in Australia.


Charged right away. I'd be using a credit card if you can. That way if there is a problem, you can probably hit up your card provider (although you might not know until after the chargeback period expires, I suppose).

Edit: For advance purchases, it appears that chargebacks are available until 150 days after the expected delivery date. Not that I'd expect to have a problem with the Bodleian. I think they would be about as safe a bet as one could find.

I have ordered a deluxe signed copy myself. I have no idea if these will sell well or be available for a long time from the Bodleian, and I don't mind. It looks to be a fabulous production, I am itching for the silk-screened prints that come only with the deluxe edition, and all of the proceeds go to the Bodleian to support their mission/book collection, so I feel it is money well spent all around.

I do have a feeling that they will sell well, though.



I agree. It is undoubtedly on the expensive side, but it does appear to be a quality proposition, and I'd rather buy the occasional first-class item (which on the face of it, this appears to be) than a lot of mediocre items. For import duty reasons, I have ordered it for delivery to the UK, so won't see until next October (wife not yet informed of her future courier duties or cost of book... Need to know basis...).

With regards to the Silk screen prints, my reading was that the cover was silk screen printed. I assume the facsimile items are printed by whatever means is appropriate to the item.

Is the deluxe available to order, already?

Edit: Ahh, I missed that due to no picture on the website. I'm a little torn as it is rather expensive.

Edit 2: What the hell. I recently sold my Motorcycle that has been sitting in the UK unused for 17 years. Proceeds now spent on pre-order.

These aren't limited, though, right? Is there any advantage in ordering now given they don't come out for a year or so?

So there has only been one impression, is that what that slightly irregular sentence was trying to communicate?

Presumably.
