i mean - and it is done you will never get bad spelling again:)



any time you see a red underline on a word when you type that means it's misspelled
Right click on the offending word and you get a list of probable replacement words.

I would really like to see listings for US and UK proofs like you have for the first US and UK editions. Pictures of all the proof states and estimated values would be very helpful to me.
I realize this may be a daunting task!

Tomas has asked me to do this. I've been working on it for a while now. It should be available fairly soon. The trouble is, life has a way of interfering with my schedule. :roll:

To come up with a listing of values, though, is virtually impossible due to the limited number of sales. The values seem to vary due to demand, which goes up as more collectors become interested in the proofs and down when they lose interest and/or sell their collections.

I'm working on the US proofs first.

You mean the link at the bottom of the site...the one that says "Identify US 1st editions"...is that the link you were looking for :D

Nope farther down

I just noticed that the "search for this book on ebay" links for the UK limiteds are directed at Ebay.com.

Sometimes I notice that there are copies of these editions on Ebay.co.uk that show up when they don't appear on the .com search.

Was wondering if it is worth adding a .co.uk search button as well?

Cheers
James

That's an interesting request and definitely something I will look into. If you don't hear anything on this by the end of September PM me.

Hey Tomas, just a quick note to say I like the .co.uk search option for the UK limiteds. I think it covers all bases re keeping track of what is available on ebay. the live listings is a cool feature.

Thanks!
