Gollancz Yellow Jackets - And Only the Jackets
Hauls of dustjackets sans books are occasionally found. Sometimes they are a bit of a treasure trove because obviously, it's possible that the value of a book with a jacket can be ten or more times that of one without. Sometimes they can be in spectacular condition as often they are from publishers or designer/illustrators' archives. Oftentimes they are actually a pain, because unless there is a standout title, finding the right edition to go in the right jacket can be annoyingly difficult and one begins to feel obligated.
It has been a long time since I have posted anything to do with Gollancz yellow-jacketed SF, which used to be something of an obsession, but in my trawl through auction archives last night I found these few lots which I couldn't just ignore. I think I am grateful I didn't know about them at the time!
