It's a bit of a rip off, isn't it? :shock:

You can buy the COM facsimile signed for 40 quid and you get both dust jackets.

Who's the other guy who signed it? :?

I'm sort of tempted because the dustwrapper on mine is really tatty and it would actually be worth buying this, throwing the frame and signatures away and rewrapping the book :wink:

I've got the facsimile book, my original is currently in the dustwrapper from that. It's just that an original wrapper in good condition would add about £500 to the value of the book

Why? :?

Is there a difference between this wrapper and a facsimile wrapper?

I think the facsimile wrapper has "facsimile" written on it somewhere. :?
