If I remember correctly, the cloth-bound limited edition of Wolf Hall came out after the novel won the 2009 Booker. Reportedly printed in a run of 2,000 copies, each book is signed on the title page. These originally appeared in stores with a list price of 35 GBP. So, not as rare as the first edition first printing that I had and sold (it was a lined copy, too!) but one that's rising substantially in price. Abebooks currently has its cheapest copy at 250 GBP. But, go on eBay, right now: there are a handful of sellers who are curiously selling copies at around 50-60 GBP ($100).
Bring Up The Bodies is approaching a similar rarity level: the clothbound edition was released with the first printing of the book, so a lot of copies have been snatched up already. There ARE still copies out there at the 35 GBP list, though: ignore the $100+ listings on eBay and head over to www.foyles.co.uk while their stock lasts.
