I bought and listed one of these today, hardcover #12. It was WL. The first request that came through had a RC "If a hardcover, it must have its dustcover - in good shape." I declined.

Do these books originally have dustjackets? Admittedly, this is the first one I've ever seen, but the cover is printed and glossy, and it dawned on me that perhaps they aren't originally issued with them

Thanks for your help, as you can see, I know nothing about these books! I had a second request w/o a RC, so it's not a problem, but I'd like to know for further reference.

no, they don't.  Except for Lemony Snicket: the Unathorized Autobiography (but this one is not #12).

(Edited because I just realized I put "biography" instead of "autobiography".  The real title is funnier.)

Oops, that RC didn't help the requestor in this case! Thanks so much for your help and Happy New Year!
