Default Hardcover Severn House Get off the Unciorn

No,I don't have oe nor spotted one but after the umpteenth fruitless internet search (including the big book search sites) I wondered...

Do any of you have/own one, ever seen one? Have pictures of it? Because I must admit I don't even have a cover scan or picture and it's absent even in Anne McCaffrey's own library. This must be even rarer than 1st 1st many a 1st 1st

Anybodey that can help me out?

I've never seen one but if I do, I'll be sure to let you know. I know it won't be something I can afford!

I saw one on ebay in the recent past. It was listed and went without a buyer... I had to work. It was relisted and I thought....yay...mine. But. It got away from me. It was an ex-library. Went for a decent price...maybe $15.

Must have missed it then because I certainly would have bought it for that price!

I thought I had one a while back....bid on it and won it...when I recieved it in the mail...it turned out to be a "Turtleback"...I was just a tad disapointed to say the least....as you can imagine.

Yes! A good picture as well as the book! Thank you very much, you copy (I presume) looks gorgeous and absolutely pristine! Thank you!

Man, I swear, this thing is even rarer than 1st editions of the Dragonrider series! On the internet at least.

Uhm... does the art run over the spine to the back of the dustjacket?

Ok, dear Hans, here is the full dust jacket and also a picture of the book sans jacket.....
Now the thing under the tail of the dragon, on the back, is hard to see in the photo, but I think it's the egg shell from which the dragon just hatched. Now that's one big baby dragon!!! If you look closely you can see the cracks still left in the shell.




Ask and ye shall receive!!!

Too funny Maelin! There are LOTS of things in this ole bag o' mine! Just keep watching the Collecting Highlights to see more! Or the occasional need of Hans for a photo of something.
