The copy is 1 of 2 known to have a 9.0 of 10 grade from Certified Guaranty Company (CGC). Seller Darren Adams, told the Washington Post his copy was “a freak-of-nature work…I actually held it for a few years – I was so excited about this book… Most books have a history … but this book was totally off the grid, and nobody knew about it till I made it known.”
As part of the deal with eBay, 1% of the sale is to be donated to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation for spinal-cord injury and paralysis research.
