Vampire - The Masquerade 20th Anniversary (V20) - Grand Masquerade - Edition

Name: Vampire - The Masquerade 20th Anniversary (V20) - Grand Masquerade - Edition 
Release date: 2011
Review links:
Description: Black genuine leather cover with imprinted Vampire Ankh and logo.The spine shows relief letters and a big V20 plate inserted into it. The spine has the look of an old hand-bound book. It has silver-edged pages and two silk-ribbon bookmarks (red and black). This beauty is really special in many different ways: it has an add-on lettering "The Grand Masquerade" and "New Orleans 2011" imprinted on the front cover (the "normal" deluxe limited edition has not). It was only sold to preorder customers, who attended the Grand Masquerade Convention hosted in New Orleans in 2011. Those preorder customers got vouchers in advance which could be swapped for the book at the convention. This book is therefore pretty rare but it is neither signed nor numbered.

And now...

Pathfinder Core Rulebook - Contributor´s Special Edition

Name: Pathfinder Core Rulebook - Contributor´s Special Edition
Release date: 2009
Publisher: Paizo Publishing
Review links:
Description: At first glance the book looks like the normal Pathfinder Core Rulebook, BUT at the second glance you realize that the Pathfinder lettering on front cover and spine is made of gold foil instead of the normal yellow print. Furthermore the add-on lettering "Special Edition" can be found above it. The book was given out to Paizo employees and Pathfinder contributors only. Just a few were auctioned off at charity events/auctions.
It has gilded pages and it is signed by nearly all Paizo employees and contributors on the first page.

Let pictures talk....
