well that l in leap looks like an r to me so it makes more sense to me to read it like read it and reap
and for the lack of dust jacket if you could find another book of the same addition and use the dust jacket off that book to replace the missing jacket from the signed book

Yeah I was thinking of That Too Ghost, getting another one just for the dust jacket. I'll post a picture of mine on here once I figure out how, it deffinately looks like Reap on mine as opposed to Leap, the "R" Is more prominant on mine, just looked. The skeleton stamp looks a bit like your Avatar too Ghost! Anyone know the signifigance of these stamps?

If you have the stamp as they were only made for the books mostly, and stamped as it was signed they were not for sale, although they made an Unseen Uni. checkto see if it's a 1st edition.

You would need an account with something like photobucket it's free upload your photo from your my pictures folder copy the code and paste it on the forum.

If you search on the forum Tony has it explaned with screen shots.

Ok Thanks Wee Dug, I'll deffo look into learing to load pictures, I checked the book and it is indeed a First edition copy of Men at arms, the full inscription reads:-
To Mark (I think it says mark), read it and reap..., then of course followed by that Skeleton Stamp. Shame my name isnt mark tho!! :D :D

I tried sending a PM to another forum member and I don't think it went - it has stuck in my outbox but says it was sent.. Is it only cleared out of the outbox when the recipient opens it up?
