I found this Catalan edition for a steal on a website I frequent in January; when I say steal, I mean steal. I bought this beautiful hardback with a dust jacket for $3.59 with free shipping. This was back in the day when I only collected editions from countries I’d previously been to, and hey, I’d been to Barcelona so I bought it. I didn’t expect it to have a dust jacket; I saw a video with a copy of this Catalan edition in it and it didn’t have one so I was elated when I saw mine did. I love the turquoise back, it brings so much to this edititon for me. I find it very interesting that the flaps are just blank, and don’t even have about the author or the synopsis.
