Unseen Academical - UK Bound Proof

This is one of only 120 copies worldwide and so is extremely rare.
Further more, the book will be signed and dedicated by the author.Image

Winning bid: £810.00 Image
-------------------------------------------
Hello there folks, if you recall, last year I auctioned the one and only signed and personally dedicated proof copy of Necrophenia to raise money for the Stroke Association. A goodly sum was raised too. So, I have now in my possession the first ever proof copy of Retromancer. I will promise that this will be the only signed copy ever and that it will come with a set of one-off prints of the tarot cards (as these are not printed in the proof copy) the money will go to the Stroke Association as this is Neil's choice of charity, and he is making the radio series of this book. And if I can chuck in any other collectables I will. By the by, I really appreciate the generosity of all concerned, this kind of stuff matters.
Cheers and who'll say a tenner?
All the bestest
Robert
