"A few nice finds as of late:
First printing of Michael Caine's "What's It All About?" Been looking for this one for quite some time.
Common's "Let Love Have The Last Word", first-printing (Premiere Collectibles…"
"That was probably me - I'm thinking of getting the whole signed set (UK/CAN/US), but the pricetag is a little high on the U.S. edition -- I may wait for a Christmas sale or post-release. Seems like she signed a lot more of the US editions…"

"The only time I've seen it happen was on a Ronda Rousey and a Gordie Howe book - both times, a printing error from the factory. Likely happened when passing through a sorting machine. Bonus for anyone who gets it!"
