    Do I have a special Charles Clarke book?

    I had purchased a copy of Nepenthes of Borneo, I figured I would recieve a new copy of the recent reprint

    Well I was wrong, it arrived today... not only is it a "new" 1997 first edition it is also autographed by Mr. Clarke and personally numbered by him 676 of 750

    now I have to admit, this is the first book of his I have owned.. is this as special as it would appear to be or were all numbered and signed?

    TIA,
    Av

    Well maybe he only signed like 750 of them, so I would say its pretty special.

    But one don't count. The author was under distress and was forced to sign it.

    I'd love to get my hands on a copy of this book, but it's always so expensive when I find it online. Is it cheaper now that it has gone through a reprint?
