Eddie Robin had 32 special sets of his two one pocket books made up. They were bound in gold-colored "lizard skin" and each copy was actually signed by the co-authors. Eddie told me the story of what he had to do to get six co-authors to each sign 32 times -- it was quite an ordeal. Eddie also told me that a number of sets were lost in a fire and he thinks that only 20 or so sets still exist.

Here are pictures of the covers and the autograph pages. I have included a partial picture of the normal burgundy cover so you can see the difference in color and texture of the limited edition. I believe both books are unread as they were owned by a billiard collector who also had several copies of each in the normal binding.

I'm asking $3500 for the pair. I will not sell them separately.
