British Edition of Daydreams with Dustcover

This is an update post of the British Edition of Daydreams. I posted this book a while back. I recently obtained this book with the original dust cover. This book of poetry wrote by Valentino himself is a rare book, the British edition is more scarce than the U.S. edition. This particular book has the original dust cover. The dust cover for Daydreams is extremely rare to find. The dust cover is made of a thin paper stock and many did not survive throughout the years. This edition of Daydreams has to rank in the top 5 among the rarest Valentino books. One of the rarest, How You Can Keep Fit, Valentino's other book is one I am still looking for.

  1. I know of heard of one person who posts to youtube who owns a copy of how you can keep fit.

  2. Well if they are interested in selling it, and if they do not want a fortune for it, send them my way! Thanks for the information, I appreciate it!

  3. Well I highly doubt the girl will part with it, lol!

    I recently found a girl in the UK on twitter who is thinking of selling her Valentino books, she had daydreams, crossing fingers it's a british version, she has a few more books too.

  4. That is awesome! Books are one of my favorite Valentino collectibles, I have over 80 different ones, but always looking for more! Good luck on obtaining Daydreams, I hope she still has it.

  5. I just purchased this edition on ebay from the UK for under $90 including shipping. The condition is a bit more worn than yours, and of course no dustjacket, but I thought it was offered at a fair price. There is a supposedly vintage postcard included with it. There is another copy listed that they are asking $400 for... Am I missing something? Either way, i just wanted an affordable copy of this book and its value is not the most important thing to me.

  6. $90 is a great price for the U.S. edition, the UK edition is much more rare. As far as people on ebay, non-Valentino collectors often take a shot in the dark on price. A reasonable price for the UK edition would be around $200 and up, you got a great deal. Congratulations, it seems your collection is grower bigger and bigger all the time!
