I don't have it at all, but I'm not terribly desperate.  Yet.  If you've got
an extra, I'd like it.  I'd also settle for a paperback that ISN'T the most
recent US edition.  I dislike that one enough that I'm extremely unwilling
to pay full price for a new copy.

As long as we're talking about collecting, rather than collecting first
editions, what I'd like to collect are the non-US editions.  I have just
about every one of DWJ's books, but they're all US editions.  (I have small
children and have to keep the valuable books locked away.  I hate doing
that.  So I just try not to buy any valuable books.  Much as I drool over
finding rare and precious signed firsts, what's inside the book is twice as
valuable to me.)
