Nice cover, great endpapers, lots of illustrations. Overall nice book in clamshell. Boards are a little thicker than most EP editions produced these days. Matches Prince and the Pauper pretty well. Prince clamshell is about 1/8th inch taller, Yankee case is about 1/4 inch thicker. The color variation between the two look okay. Photos are in the album. Click the pic.

Just received my copy today as well. Overall a nice book. Nicer than the standard books but not as nice as some of the DLEs. But overall a Google book and the price compared well. I'll keep it happily.

Thanks for sharing the photos. I am so very tempted, but I keep telling myself I don't need to buy $300 books. I'm still deciding, though.

I think I may be finished posting pictures on this website. Ebayers taking them to use to sell their own books instead of taking their own pictures. Just seems wrong to me somehow. At least they should ask first, don't you think?

Place your name on the photo over the book, and if you see someone using your pictures report them, it is technically copyright infrigement.

Ya, its a shame that people can't do the right thing on their own though. Easier to not post pictures here than having to watermark every one.

Isn't it a breach of eBay ethics to post pictures of a different item than the one you are selling? If it's not, then it should be.

4> It's a one-day auction so it's probably someone needing some quick Christmas cash. The guy probably doesn't actually have a copy of the book but will order one after someone "wins" his auction, and then pocket the difference. Which is probably why he used your photos. I'd file a complaint with Ebay to cancel the auction.

Yes, I often wondered what kind of a fool would spend 100s $ more on an item on Ebay when they still could buy the same one directly from Easton Press....

Notified the seller about the pictures and they agreed to close the listing. The seller did not have a working camera at the moment, communication directly is the most affective approach.

I've also had someone use my pictures of The Wind in the Willows and I emailed them and asked to either remove the pictures or add text and a link to The Book Blog acknowledging the pictures came from there or else I'd be reporting them to EBay within 48 hours. The person removed them immediately and messaged me to let me know.

And I'd hate to have to deface my photos with a watermark. I guess one of the things I've come to terms with is that anything that I put online can be taken and used without my permission.

My book is #83....curious what number this "limited edition" up to?

Jan 5, 2013, 7:58am Top

The numbers are shipped in random order so there is no way to tell without calling EP and asking. They never give exact numbers for remaining inventory but on a non DLE title they have told me "about 200" or "under 50" when I've been trying to prioritize purchases before they sell out.

With this DLE & "Pauper" selling out....here is hoping that Easton continues the trend and publishes another Twain edition....

Looks like this Twain edition is sold out also glad I picked up a copy. http://www.eastonpressbooks.com/leather/product.asp?code=2609&c=4
