    Why not open it for inspection - to ensure that the copy you have is free from defect, if for no other reason?

    aye - it looks perfect, its just shrink wrapped.

    One of my various personalities is a very long time 80s Toys collector - and from time to time I need something MISB just to keep the voices calm that say:
    "shhht can't open it …. can't open - look!!! its not for opening its for collecting … shhhh do not touch the foil you fool!"

    and so i take my UK copies to keep this voice calm.

    + it makes it more exiting to have that Schrodinger thing running ;D

    Ha ha! Ok. Collectible books are not like collectible toys in regards to removing the shrinkwrap, but it's your choice. Enjoy the mystery!

    Seb, now at 171/1 !!
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    You know there is a solution to the shrinkwrap problem? Should I leave it on or take it off.........if everyone did like CD does just stop shrinkwrapping the books we would not be having this problem. I hope CD doesn't ever start to shrinkwrap their books.

    I added your book to the list. Let us know when you locate your other copy.

    I will definitely let you know the other number when I open it. #195 was sent to Thailand and the second copy was ordered from, and mailed to, London. I had requested #200 to match a Dark Tower set, when I was called from Hodder to confirm my order, but I could only make a request. There was no guarantee from the agent on the phone.
