    Not trying to make you feel bad, but personally, I think it kills the resale value.

    Comment


      Hmm without knowing how much it cost you I can't really speak to if it's a deal breaker or not. Maybe some research on eBay comparing what you paid for it to similar things. Though at the end of the day it mostly really depends on what you are collecting it for. If you're collecting it for a completionist mentality it may not matter (I know it wouldn't to me), but if you are collecting it for it's value then it probably matters a lot.

        Thanks Brad. It is Brad right? lol. Apologize if not, still trying to pick up on the names as I see 'em. I've contacted the seller with an unhappy but polite email in regards to returning it for a full refund. I know personally I'm not going to be happy knowing that the writing is in there even if it doesn't kill the resale value. We pay good money for writing that is suppose to be included with editions, not vice versa.

          It was a pretty penny Dan. I'm collecting not so much for resale value but after I'm dead and gone, that might matter to someone. Such as my children lol.

                  I'll really appreciate all of ya guys for your opinions now this and I'll shoot over there and see what they have to tell me. An update on the situation: Ed, the gentleman who sold me the book, is willing to do what ever to correct the problem. Even sent me his phone number, we chatted awhile, and said he honestly didn't know the writing was in the book. In the end I'll probably end up sending it back to him because the writing just bugs me to no end and I'd end up selling it just to purchase a "clean" copy.

And you're correct Mike, it wasn't a $20.00 purchase by a long shot and the writing wasn't mention at all at the time of purchase. My next question is how much does this affect the value of the book? Honestly I'm so pissed right now I don't even want the damn thing but if it's still of value I guess I should keep it.
                      It doesn't destroy the value, but it will impact it to a large degree. If it's an unsigned 1st/1st, the effect is going to be more significant than if it's the signed edition.

                      Considering everything you've posted, though, I'd probably just return it.

                        Yea it's just the plain Jane 1st/1st and I probably will do that. I posted over at the Dark Tower just to get their feel out of curiosity. I've already had several private offers to sell me a clean copy once I get this cleared up. Can't say it enough. You guys as a whole are truly awesome!

                            Was it through Ebay?

                                I think that is easily a reason to go through Ebay if they do not refund.
