I posted on another thread about first impression first editions with original dust jackets etc - and mentioned some 'spares' that have cropped up during my quest for a full set. I am missing one book out of the set, no guesses needed on which :)

A range of first edition first impressions are available and where they have them, original dust covers. Others donít have the dust jackets.

I am not a book seller / trader so not up to speed on condition standards but can supply pictures / video to help assess, likewise there is a copy of Hammond there as well.

Hopefully this can help someone towards the same goal as it is quite hard to get a collection together.

On the flip side if anyone has a unicorn S&A first impression with DJ and open to Ďfairí but cheeky offers to a good home, or a decent condition Winter Holiday with DJ (mine has a rear tear) let me know !

Postage depends where they are going and by what method, UK based seller, ideally looking to do a 'set'.
