This is now up on eBay in a Heritage Gallery auction. I didn't even know the thing existed before I saw the auction; popped up in one of my Mugnaini searches.

I'd known about the asbestos Stephen King Firestarter edition for many years, but I hadn't realized one of the reasons he did it was because it had been done with this F451 edition first.

How about a copy of Fahrenheit 451 which can only be read when set on fire?
