The original Italian issue (Via Castiglione address) has a textured sleeve, no song titles on the labels, and a printed inner. The reissue (Via Collamarini address) has the song titles printed on the labels, non-textured/smooth sleeve, and a plain inner. Never seen the insert before and unless it's some kind of promo from Base Record I very much doubt it's original. The discography listing has some further details about the Italian UP pressings: http://www.joydiv.org/up.htm

that's why i posted the link because there was no mention of an italian textured version.the sheets could be promo or self inserted to make it more attractive but as i posted before the seller states that the item was obtained as such .so,if
no other copy crops up or someone else says that they have a similar copy with inserts it will stay a mystery!

It's a bit hard to tell from the auction page images, but it looks like the LP has the song titles printed on the label, which would indicate it's not the original ("Via Castiglione") pressing.
