Found a book with...

Labels on the front, and back covers, spine and very last page last week. All look unique homemade labels.

However there is NO label on the inside front cover nor a BCID anywhere in the book.(To the extent I looked on every single page).

Anyone recognize this book and its labels? If so, PM me with a BCID.

How odd.

Is there a BCID somehow inked into one of those many labels? It does seem a bit absent-minded of the person to bother to label it so heavily and then forget to add the number!

I guess you could always just register it as if you were the first owner and then add your own BCID to it.

Congrats on finding it. In all my years as a bookcrosser, I have never found one in the wild

There's none that I saw, but you have given me an idea. Perhaps the person did ink it on the label and rubbed off. I'll have to check when I get home.

Where about is that LFL? I found this book released into a LFL by grubsneerg but it was 4 years ago and still in the wild, wonder if it is that one?

No, not mine—not my style of labels. (But good detective work, bookstogive!)

It's in Stroudsburg, the opposite side of PA from Pittsburgh.

I looked through a few hundred of the 1062 copies of that book that are registered but couldn't find any that were possibly released by anyone who lives in that area or in Jersey.
If I am bored tonight I'll look to see if there are any members who live in the area and might use a LFL for releases.

I appreciate any help!

It might be worth posting in the user-created labels thread. A lot of users there have had good luck tracking down where a particular custom label came from, and the pink one on the front is very distinctive! The not-for-sale label over the ISBN barcode is pretty noticeable too, and I feel like I've had a few books labeled that way. I don't think I have any now, but if I remember a BCer who did that, I'll let you know so you can check with them.

Good luck!
