Rum cover

The Advance Reader's Copy is 48 pages long, and I'm assuming it contains the first three chapters. This was the best pic that one owner of one could get me :-) Below is what the signed bookplate for The Rum Diary looks like. These were sold by the The Booksmith. Mine arrived and it is signed in blue ink. Bookplate versions will never be as valuable as ones that were really signed on the title page by HST, but they certainly are collectible.
