Be careful with the spine of that Throy. I understand that turquoise is extremely light-sensitive. In fact, there may not exist copies without bleach . . . unless they were stored in a dark compartment.

My Araminta is not numbered, but instead has a stamp on this spot that says "Presentation Copy". What does that mean? Did UM give Jack a bunch of these books, so he could give them to friends? If so, how many? It is signed, but has no inscription.
