Unseen Academcials - Slipcase Edition

Postby quizgeezer » Sun Oct 18, 2009 10:39 am

Having previously purchased slipcase editions, I was a bit miffed having spent £160-00 on 4 of the "UA" slipcase editions ... to find that none of them were pre-signed.

Is this normal for this particular book or did I buy some "rogue copies" ... did anyone buy a copy that was pre-signed ???

None of the slipcased editions were pre-signed this time round., some previous editions were. :(

I feel tha same about these editions as I do about the football cards. Forty quid for a cardboard box? Please! Milking fans is pretty low :evil: We buy the books without question, Terry's rich, the publishers are rich, so why this?

What are these slip case editions ??? The usual price of the hardcovers in AUST is $40-50 and that doesn't stop me where can one get these slip cover editions ?

Are those the ones with the dustcovers?

My dad got me one cheap second-hand, can't have cost him more than a tenna. And I already had a Paperback version.

Otherwise I'm completely lost.
