so, is a copy without the "signed limitation page tipped in for "friends of the author and publisher"" a first? or collectible?

Yes, a copy without the tipped-in page is still a first edition, and is still collectible as part of the trilogy - All the Pretty Horses, The Crossing, and Cities of the Plain. But as you might imagine, first editions with the tipped-in pages are worth much more than those without.
