Love 'em. Love searching for 'em. Love haggling for 'em. Love reading 'em and finding mistakes.The Challenge
To get a collection of uncorrected proofs by the world's most famous authors (TP excluded) with a combined age of 1,000 years.Rules
- The author must be world famous
- One book per author
- time limit = 1 yearProblem
A lot of books don't have proofs and those that do tend to be a bit pricey - way out of my price range.Solution
Instead of getting hold of a major work by a specific author, I'll try for an obscure book, the tattier and more battered the cheaper.Update
I have two so far.
George Orwell - 66 years old
Arthur C Clarke - 50 years old.
I have paid for another two and am watching a further two.
