Were Wrath came out from Cheap Street
Rather than the copies being "cheap" they are extraordinarily bound.

I haven't checked the copy on ebay, but they came out in several elegantly bound copies.

The standard copy has dust jacket in "veneer". Or at least paper that has the graining like a veneer - with title and graphic printed on. [I cannot remember if there was a thin sheet of what looked like wax paper surrounding that.] The paper used, was a heavy (thick) cream, and the endpapers had lots of bits, and were handmade with a high rag content. I believe that the book is bound in green cloth.

I have the proofs, which are oversized tall. Bound in Green Italian cloth. Yes, they even bound their uncorrected proofs.

I have a couple of boxed editions - bound in Italian cloth, Niger Goat spine surrounds. I also have a copy of the prospectus (cannot spell this morning), which describes the different editions. This reads like the descriptions of an ice-cream sunday.

Of course all of these are far from my computer. If you want more detail, drop me a line.

I wanted to look at this out of curiosity to see what I can't afford Smile , but I can't find a listing. Do you have an item # I can check out? Searching for combinations of were & wrath doesn't return anything. Hunting through the results of a search for Andre Norton, didn't see it (of course, I could have missed it).

However, I did see a listing for the complete (252 books!!) Gregg Press line. only $40,000. Smile

Well, Duh! I asked for a link, but I didn't post one myself. Here it is:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...y=377&rd=1

BTW, that $40k will also get you "the original painting done by Jack Gaughan for the cover of the Andre Norton Witch World books published by Gregg Press."

Oh, and it isn't the complete Gregg Press line, just the complete Gregg Press SF line. Sorry about that...
