    "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

    I had a rethink on the 'awaiting approval' and put the FB peoples names up. I figured if they were happy to post on FB, then they are not wanting the information to be private.
    FB is also notoriously difficult to find any info older than a few days. In fact a couple of the posts I had noted I can no longer find (if anyone has info on these please let me know), so this is a more permanent record of sightings/owners for anyone who may be looking for a specific #

    Why does that interest you?
    If you knew an accurate number, how would that help you?
    Since the publisher limited it to 200 people, essentially all UK buyers it was automatic that prices would skyrocket on the secondary market.

    Very Very few people have only purchased all of King's book at issue price and never sold.
