I have no idea.From what I read the company started in JUNE 1954 but did not start re-binding paperback books until the mid 60s for schools & libraries. So to find a copy without library marking has to make a clean copy even rarer. Of course having it signed don't hurt ether.

So all I can say is....Do you have or ever seen one or know anyone who has?

I have never seen a permabound version, and as you mention they would almost all be ex-library copies if you did find one. Super cool item!

Yes I do have a copy and the best part is it was brand new and was never read or stamped by a library.
