    Default Dark Tower Same-Number Sets: Who owns them?



    As the Dark Tower series is my passion and the cornerstone of my collection, I have been tracking the ownership of complete same-number sets for a number of years now. As you probably know, there were only 500 Signed and Numbered Gunslingers issued (1-500) plus 12 Publishers copies plus 1 "converted Publisher's Copy, making 13. So even though there were 1,500 S/L DT VII books, it is only possible to put together a complete set all with the same number if your number is 500 or less. With the help of many individuals, I have put together a comprehensive list of "known" owners. This is what my database shows (I would be grateful to any who could shed light on any numbers not accounted for below):

    WE ARE AT 70 COMPLETE NUMBERED SETS ACCOUNTED FOR
    At least 4 COMPLETE PUBLISHER's SETS

    This is an amazing piece of information Wiz, thank you for posting it.

    Should we put a graphic with it and add it as an "article" in the catalog?
    The kindness of close friends is like a warm blanket

    Holy Hell...Theres only one thing I can say about the shear amount of volume and information you have there...You need a girlfriend.

    Nice work!



    "As for gunslingers, Roland," Cuthbert says, "I am here. And we are the last."


    When two fit, it makes you think
    I got the cute one, my woman
    She says, "Lovin's all I bring"
    And it's her loving that's a wonderful thing.
    Lovin' yes we are, it's such a wonderful thing
    When two fit it makes you think
    See us both in the black
    She lays on me so relaxed.

    Wiz, you have done an incredible amount of work on that list.
    I'm quite glad to see it here.

    He's right, Wiz. Just don't let your wife find out.




    I know it has taken you a long time to compile this list. Great work!

    Feel free to update some of those ".net" to ".com" if you feel it appropriate. Also, I'd like to confirm that I am the "Patrick" from the Grant Books wanted page, if you want to just put TDT.com after my name on #196 and #290.

    I have a wife? 3 kids?

    I will add your data Patrick, maybe I will just just edit the first post. (Done)

    Matt- I am open for a graphic, but let me look and see what I have. I am already thinking of my ultimate remarque with Roland standing, holding the rose, gazing at the Dark Tower (see below).

    And, yes, I have spent a lot of time tracking these things on eBay, the Grant want page (now long defunct), my own network of collectors, ABE etc. It is a labor of love to be sure.

    I agree, it would be a nice one, it's the best of the remarques I've seen.

    I added the graphic. Is that what you meant?

    That's perfect, the only other thing I was going to do is "wrap" the text around it

    but on second thought, that graphic is pretty large so I think that will work fine the way it is.

    There's a new matching set that's going for sale at Camelot Books (yesterday it was posted in the newsletter, not on the site). You might want to follow that one and see what number it is Wiz?

    Complete set #432 on sale on eBay for $14k+

    http://cgi.ebay.com/HOLY-GRAIL-Steph...QQcmdZViewItem

    Note in my original post that the seller purchased this set from gunkslinger just 2 months ago for $9,500. That would be a hefty profit if he can sell it at his asking price. I think he is about 4 grand too high in this market.
