    How did the copy of Born of Man and Woman make it through all of the disasters that hit that title before it was released?

    There is a little( I assume) sticker residue inside endpapers also on back endpapers but less of it (STRANGE). & a little roughness on the top of the dj.





    But I can live with it.

    You don't think it is damp stains or mildew from the flood? I have wondered if any copies made it out unscathed?

    There wa s a flood at the warehouse before the book was released destroying or at least damaging most of the copies, then during the shipping of the salvageable copies there was a fire at the warehouse that destroyed the copies that hadn't yet shipped.

    That is the best I loaned this book to a friend story ever! Much better to get it back like that than to learn it was used as a coaster.

    A couple of years ago I found his address and sent him a Spanish copy of He is Legend along with a letter telling him how his book influenced in my life.

    Against all odds, I got my book back with one of the best inscriptions ever.

    Where did the creativity in DJ design go? I don't like the graphic art design that today's designers use for most books. These are awesome covers!
