    Hi, I have a copy of 7th Guest Limited edition with the VHS, though I have to check if it's a french or UK/US version.

    EDIT: It's a UK version, in relatively bad shape but maybe salvageable, I'll send it to you just for the shipping cost. PM sent.

    The Limited Edition looks like and open up like a book, whereas the special edition with VHS is the normal box. Thanks!!

    It's that one, though from a quick search and your pictures it's missing some king of sleeve.
