Congrats for getting those printer's proofs!
Did you find them on eBay or some kind of live auctions?

No, they were posted to a book seller's online store and I spotted them there.
I've never seen that style of proof before, so I was intrigued.

I looked through your photo gallery recently. You've added a lot!

I'm still trying to get at least one copy from each of 50 countries Dune was published. There is now 41 countries in my collection and 1360 books in overall. I also have complete collection from 11 countries.

My first time posting here.

Did you get those ARCs from Hydraxia Books? As a collector of ASOIAF saga books, I had few correspondence with Simon at Hydraxia and he is world class :)

Fantastic collection from everyone! I am just starting out with collecting specifically to Dune :)

Paul of Dune was so bad it gave me a seizure that dislocated both of my shoulders and prolapsed my anus.

Except the waiting part, everything went smoothly!

It is insane how much knowledge there is in this forum. It would take years for me to ponder!
