I recently received three parcels of books from my wife for my birthday. When my wife had asked me what I wanted for my birthday I'd suggested just wrapping the parcels of books I'd recently received in the post. The books were the result of several dives down a series of rabbit holes while online shopping.
The first parcel of books were for a particular cover of John Gardner's "Icebreaker" which I discussed in my last post.
The second parcel also contained a John Gardner title published by Coronet-General Books, this time "For Special Services". The book is shown on the left in the photo below. These two books are identical except for one point; the silver title text. The cover on the right shows what the silver text should look like. The cover on the left has misprinted silver text.Less Common Books And Ephemera page on PizGloria.com.
