    Here's a picture of my latest "find". The owner is not willing to sell it. He figures it's probably the only one currently in existence. I agree.

    The marks are the tape on the plastic bag it's in.

    That's the original from the UK. Here's the revised US proof from Viking. These are very scarce, too.

    I used the new text wrap option to edit the first post in this thread so it would look good on the Collectors Page (not actually active yet).

    Hope it looks okay

    I've got The Drawing of the Three black cover with orange/reddish Roland pic, (with the publisher's letter), and a well used DTVII, and that's it.

    Whoever wins, I'm interested in purchasing the advance copy that is one of the prizes. If anyone wants to sell theirs. (I know I wouldn't, but it can't hurt to ask!)

    Does anyone wnat to go to the trouble to scan the face, spine and rear of all (U.S to start) the proofs to create a catalog?
    I am willing to help with posting the pics, but alas, I own only 1 or 2 proofs.
    John?
    Are you there?

    Ooooh, I own more proofs than Jerome! I'll trade a couple of them for that big screen TeeVee!!!

    I think the catalog is a great idea, but I'm in the same boat as you--way too few proofs. And likely nothing that John or SirBoomme don't have.

    Would it be possible to estimate print runs of each one???

    I'd like to help, but I just don't have the time to do all the ones needed. I have scanned MOST of the front covers of the proofs I own, but not the spines or backs. I can email the ones I've done to whomever, but it will take quite a bit of time to do the rest. I have posted some of the front covers in the Gallery already. Either PM or email me if you want.
