I'm going to need a swat team, ready to mobilize, street maps covering the whole of florida, a pot of coffee, 12 jammy dodgers and A FEZ.

Heello Meerkat,
The limited edition is a Waterstone's Exclusive and only 5000 were published. The number is handwritten on the second page.
Fortunate for you, my little iconographic imp, Mr. Paul A. Royd, has scribbled down some remarkable images for you to ease your curiousty.

Welcome from me too, snostorm! :D Sadly, I can't help you either, but I hope you'll find someone who can... (but why'd you sell a signed, numbered copy of Nation?? :shock: )
Listen.

Welcome to the site, snostorm! :D

This isn't a lot of help, but it's going to be worth as much as people are prepared to spend on it. There was a time, not so long ago when people joked that Terry signed so many books that it was rarer (and therefore more valuable) to have an unsigned one.

That isn't true of course, but as with any author - the more signed copies they are, the less valuable they'll be. It's supply and demand. :)
