It is a very nice leather (in my opinion). It can maybe be seen as kind of smooth plastic-y ... sort of ... but it's more smooth leather ... and with a good thickness. Also the "humps" on the spine of the book are more pronounced then most.
So my question is ... are there anymore EP titles that are similar to this.
I just got a hold of EP's DLE of A Yankee in King Arthurs Court ... and it too is very nice ... and it's cover has some similarities to the Huck Finn one ... but it is less smooth/thick ... and has more of a small grain texture.
Around the world in 80 days, Jungle Book and Michael Strogoff all have kind of similar covers (smooth leather) to Huck Finn. But there is definitely something special and unique with the Huck Finn (maybe it also has to do with the really dark green cover and the size of the book ... it's more wide then any of the above mentioned ... except "king arthur's court").
Maybe it's the combo of the size (thin, not as many pages/thick) and the dark color and the texture/exaggerated binding bumps ... maybe it's all these things that contribute to my enjoyment of holding it and touching it while reading it (yes ... I know I sound like a 12 year old boy talking about a first experience) lol
I know I'm talking circles here ... but just seeing if anyone else has a similar experience with this title ... or if I'm just weird with this one.
yes, I got problems with my excitement levels when a book affects all my senses.
>4 HugoDumas: this is the one I am referring to. I found it in a local used book sale ... and for a fair price (as you can see marked at the top in photo 4). It is one of my favorite DLE's to hold and read for some reason ... most of which i described in the obnoxious 12 year old childs rant above. lol
I can’t believe a bookstore owner would write in a limited edition. Congratulations, you got a real steal at $200!
And I'm sure they don't go back and reprice any of their books ... there are just way WAY too many. And every time I go in there ... I see people bringing boxes and boxes of books to trade in.
>6 jroger1: As for the pencil price marking ... I've watched them mark the price in some books before ... and they use a very very soft marking. Sometimes so light you can hardly read it. But I do agree ... it's cringe worthy seeing a marking in these fine limited books.
While I agree with much of what you promote, that pink eraser remark made me cringe!! Ahhh!!! It hurts! I've never seen a pink eraser of any make not leave smudging behind (they usually expand smudging for me). I'm a huge fan of Pentel's polymer eraser, which is white. I think painted drywall is about the only think it hasn't gracefully eliminated 100% of a pencil mark for me.
WHAT?! what bookseller in their right mind does that?
To be fair to the bookseller, they promptly fully refunded the purchase price and paid for the return shipping explaining that they had received the book from someone else and did not notice the inked price.
