Also, do you have a #40?




I bet it'll be dwarfed by RHG's #40, but here's mine:

Crack it. Crack it ... unless you break my heart and tell me you have another reading copy?

Actually, I'm keeping it slabbed for now because of the long tear in the bottom right corner (which brings the grade down to a 5.0; the book is gorgeous otherwise). I feel as though the slab is keeping the tear from getting larger, and given that I handle my books quite a bit (see any Chicago forum dinner), I can't be trusted with not exacerbating it.

Wowzers Win, I can't compete with that...very nice presentation (I'd love to see that copy out of its tomb!).

May I ask if it's a small or large logo label, and what is the page quality?

STEVE Got Larson?

Small logo (old label), cream to off-white pages. Label also notes "very minor amount of glue on cover", so technically it's one of those restored blue label books. I've been unable to spot the glue through the slab, but I'm not surprised by that (I imagine it could be at the spot of the bottom corner tear for conservation, but I can't see it). Although I'm a Centaur guy according to my user name, I'm a big fan of this book and obviously took my avatar from it.

Centaurman, that is one beautiful book, and it won't be eclipsed by my copy since I don't own one. Back when I was actively looking for a #40, I couldn't find one in the grade I wanted. Now, the book has become so valuable in high grade that it is cost prohibitive to buy one.

I'll keep the thread from getting bogged down on my Adventure #40 by posting one of my other favorites, #37:


I forget who did the cover; was it Flessel or O'Mealia? Looks like Flessel but I thought he usually signed his work.

That has been a definite point of contention in the past. There was a thread about it somewhere in this section. If I remember correctly, the final consensus was that it was indeed Flessel. I will see if I can dig up the thread.
