Looking for Joy Division on VHS, and the rare purple box

I have Unknown Pleasures in this version you are talking about:

Purple box, FAC 10c
2 Postcards inside, one with song list, and one with the Unknown Pleasures EEG graph, silver on white card stock.

I have never seen the Closer one, though.
