    This is A high street retailer, not Cemetery Dance or PS..

    Not sure if they are even numbered?
    "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

    YEA! GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.
    You would have a better chance having CD match this edition.

    Sounds difficult to do. IIRC, the Waterstones is unnumbered. I suppose one could write their own number in (with a crayon...).

    The Wind Through The Keyhole and Doctor Sleep were numbered... but I don't think Waterstones would bother their arse trying to match for you if you asked.

    Yes, HUGE thanks to this site, I seem to have also scored a copy. Looks like a lovely edition (and the standard H&S design)...

    Also took the gamble and ordered the regular edition in case they don't include the image on the book cover(not the DJ) like the other 1st editions.

    Hey all, I sent a message to them too requesting 'robust packaging.' I used Flaggs template along with an insert courtesy of tippy4 that I use for all of my eBay purchases, I thought I would share this updated template in case others also want to send a message. Thank you to Flagg and tippy for the material

    'I ordered the signed limited stephen king sleeping beauties today. In the past, Waterstones shipping of books to the USA often were inadequately packaged, resulting in damage to the book. Since there are only 250 of the books, there likely won't be any to replace damaged copies.
    Please pack mine in a fashion that will insure it arrives safely. For example, please ship in a sturdy cardboard box big enough to allow for at least two inches of padding (foam peanuts, bubblewrap, etc.) on all sides of the book. Please pack tightly so book can't move at all once box is sealed. I'm more than willing to pay extra for this kind of robust packaging.

    Best,

    Customer

    Order # 12......'
    Looking for:
    1) Gunslinger S/L #238
    2) CD Carrie S/L & matching art portfolio #58
    3) white The Stand Collector traycase w/window in front
    4) unfolded Grant Waste Lands 1st edition dustjacket
    5) Eyes of the Dragon proof with green wrappers

    My thoughts were that the uk may be delivered first and asking cd to match my ordered book and portfolio to the number on the uk version.

    Not sure if worth matching, but may be cool to have a mini set.

    Regarding Waterstones, collecting from store and hopefully avoid bumps and dings

    Wow! (I wonder how many Waterstones employees have seen that and thought, hmmmm??? )

    From the mock up photo, it looks as though the limited will have illustrated boards - maybe metallic paper??

    On the website it states 4 days until publication. I believe these books are published and ready to ship.

    It was listed as Scotland, not sure Hyraxia are based there.

    250.00 for SB..........UTD was only 100.00.

    Quite a change in 8 years.

    Of course...the print run of SB is half of that of UTD......Waterstones needed to make their money somehow.
