So weird. My copy didn't come with a dust jacket either.

The Edition with Dustjacket is a Book Club Edition sold by thebookpeople.co.uk

That had crossed my mind --but it doesn't appear to be marked in any way. (Although that's hardly unheard of.) Soon have a closer look; as I ordered one, fancying one with a jacket anyway.

I purchased a couple from the book club when it was released and also the trade edition from the bookdepository.co.uk

The Book Club ones came with DJ and the trade edition without.

Did not check the Copyright Page for mention of Book Club etc yet.

Just checked the book club edition.

No markings indicating it is a book club edition. Could not find any blindstamps either.

Dustjacket is priced £14.99 despite the fact it only cost £4.99

Did it only cost £4.99 at first? (I assume that's not including postage.) It's £11.99 on their site at the moment. I suppose it's quite like their 2008 release, when they put out that H with the slipcase. It was pretty well made for a book costing only a fiver.

Yes, definitely £4.99 for the first couple of months.

I know because I bought a couple more at a later stage (not sure why exactly - but they seemed good value at that price).

Postage was free. They do offers every now and again with discounts & free postage. And there is free postage with orders over a certain value. Think I got 10% off and free postage at the time, so actually only cost £4.50 (and then 5% cashback at one of those cashback sites bringing the price down a little further).

Just looked at the bookpeople website.

The one for sale at the moment for £11.99 may actually be the Harpercollins Trade Edition (without DJ). Cannot be 100% positive about this though.

They do also sell the regular trade editions and may have sold out of their own club edition.

Khamûl, please let us know if the edition sold by thebookpeople has the dustjacket, since I also fancy getting a copy. (If I understood you correctly you have placed an order.)

Okay, got the jacketed ("book club") copy in front of me. There is no indication anywhere (book or jacket) that it's anything other than a HarperCollins (trade) edition. In fact all the printed matter (copyright pg., etc) is the same; same sheets presumably. The jacket has the ISBN on it & (as remy says) a price (--& a barcode.)

It is, however, distinguishable from the jacketless copy by its boards; which are paper covered. (In the photo, pg. previous, that I posted --this is hard to discern.)
