|Margaret Atwood 457/1000|
But here's the best part. The shrink-wrap I mentioned has a British price sticker on it marked at 75 pounds sterling...something like $130 U.S. I don't know how many of the one thousand books produced actually sold for that price, but I doubt than even one other one was purchased brand new for less than five bucks. So...gotcha, HPB, gotcha. (Of course, Half Price probably paid only a dollar or two for the book when they acquired it.)
And here's the book that fits inside the presentation box (what you can't see is the beautifully gilded endpapers on all three sides and the quality of the paper and binding).
