I have a series of book numbers and signed dates (about half courtesy of Robert at Rare-Collectible-Books the other half by various people who e-mailed me with the dates of books they own) all of the books were signed between July 5-8, 1980. If you own a copy number that I list as a ??? it means I don't know the date it was signed. E-mail Me with the number and date and I will add it to the list.
