RUN (SIGNED), Patchett, Ann
8 RUN (SIGNED)
Patchett, Ann
HarperCollinsPublishers, 2007, 0061340634 / 9780061340635

First Edition, Hardcover, Fine, Very Fine. Book. 
Hardcover first edition, first printing. Stated First Edition with "1" present in complete number line. First American Edition. Very fine (unread) copy in very fine jacket. Signed by Patchett on a special, tipped-in page. A tipped-in sheet is an extra page added by the publisher, usually between the half-title page and the endpapers. The publisher will send a certain number of blank sheets to the author, the author signs the sheets (i.e. pages) and sends them back to the publisher who binds them into the book during the publication process. So, this is a Publisher's signed edition, signed prior to publication by Patchett. This promotional copy is different than others, in that the tipped-in page usually has a signature only. This publisher's copy includes a publisher's statement that this copy was especially signed by Patchett for the publisher.
