Default Transposing dust jackets

Hi,

I'm a bit new to collecting, so forgive me if this is a bit outrageous. Suppose you had a very special copy of a book, say, with an inscription, but the dust jacket was less than fine. If you were able to acquire another copy of the book of the exact edition, with a perfect dust jacket, which you checked was exactly the same as the one you had on the original, could you switch the dustjackets?

I somehow think this is reasonable because people talk about checking that the dustjacket is first issue as well as the book, the value of the dustjacket vs the value of the book. I think this is a good way to add value to a signed copy and also have a reading copy.

There might be an issue if say the dustjacket is chipped and the spine is faded where the dj is chipped.

Please let me know what you think. Thanks!

As far as I know there is nothing wrong with that. There are quite a few First state dustjackets being sold on ebay without the book for this purpose.

I concur. As long as the DJ is from an identical edition, who's to know?
