Well its a true 1st in hb in fine/fine condition, and on abebooks its between £60.00 - £185.00 and one on ebay is B.I.N for £125.00 so i reckon £90.00 is a fair price and if you want to check my feedback on ebay look up Lovestud and you'll see im an excellent trader ( and no stamps you'll notice :) )

Ive only got one that really makes me smile ( not that the others dont) and thats a type written proof from Neil gaimans typewritter of Good omens. Now what would that be worth, i paid peanuts for it from someone that didnt know what it was. :)

Unfortunatly no i dont but im 99% certain its real, ive done alot of research on it and i only know of one other and ther owner of that i've corresponded with and hes sure it is as well and he does have authentication, his cost him ahell of alot of money as he got it at a charity auction in America. I think he said it cost him something like $15K
