FAQ for this group? by Denise[_3_]
Hi, I used to hang out here a lot but have been away for quite a while. I've been linking to the RCB FAQ from my website, but just found the link is dead. Can anyone tell me where it's moved? I hope it's still around somewhere, as I often have pointed folks to it for book care tips. cheers!

A collector's puzzle: S. by [email protected]
I am seeing copies of the Abrams/Dorst puzzle book "S." advertised for sale as "first edition, first printing." Since the edition statement is inside the back cover of the slipcased book, which is closed with a paper seal (in addition to being shrink-wrapped), how can you tell? I was in Barnes &...

Cute stunt by [email protected]
A dealer has listed a signed copy of Derek Jacobi's new autobiography on both eBay and ABEbooks. The text and photos clearly show it to be the identical book, offered by the same seller. There won't be a U.S. edition of this title. HarperCollins slapped a new barcode sticker on some third and...

General Collecting Question by SoulBrother
In the last year or so I found myself purchasing large format art and photography books. Many of those purchases have been made online and I'm discovering games that online sellers play.
