    Default Book Collection: The Library Policeman

    Hi everyone. Been visiting the forums for a good while now and I post quite regularly so I thought it was maybe time to start my own collection thread. This site is wonderful, as are the people who post on it and I really enjoy seeing everyones collections. Also, the info you pick up in Calvin's Corner is priceless at times, so anyone who browses the forum and hasn't joined up, I urge you to do so. If you are obssessed by, love, or even like Stephen King's work then this is the place to be!

    As for me, I have been reading Stephen King books for almost 30 years now and collecting his work (to one degree or another) for around 25 years. I will go into more detail on my collection (in its various guises) as I go along, so here goes.

    Default IT

    The first book I will be sharing was the book that kinda got me started on collecting King. By 1986 I had read a few King books, 'Salem's Lot, The Shining etc. 1986 was also the year of my 18th birthday and one of the gifts my Mother (bless her heart) got me was this:




    I loved the fact that it was a special edition, had a short message by King inside, and featured a facsimile signature by King! (ah, the good old days when I was delighted by a facsimile sig).

    Any way, after I received this book, I started to collect other King titles, mostly paperbacks, which have unfortunately gone now, but I am so happy that I have managed to hold on to this one for just over 25 years now. So thanks Mum, you indirectly have cost me a small fortune in my later life!

    Default MORE IT'S!

    A few more editions of IT I have aquired over the years.

    US 1st/1st




    Cemetery Dance Ltd and Gift Editions



    This one below, I absolutely love. It's only a book club edition, but has been signed by the man himself and I love having it in my collection.




    IT S/L #355 signature page.




    So, that's my IT's. From the 1st one I owned to the beautiful Cemetery Dance editions which are the last ones I got, 25 years later.

    Default MY KING TRADE EDITIONS BOOKCASE.

    Here is the bookcase where I keep my Stephen King trade hardcovers. Sorry the pictures aren't the best. I got my brother to take the pictures of my other bookcase, where I keep my Ltd editions, and those pics are much better. Will post those later. In the meantime, I collect a mixture of UK and US Hardbacks. Nearly all are 1st editions, barring a few exceptions.

    Full Bookcase:





    Shelf 1.

    The US copies of 'Salem's Lot, The Shining and The Stand are 1st/1st's. The US Carrie and Nightshift are book club editions (place holders until I get the real deal).



    3helf 2.




    Shelf 3.



    Shelf 4.

    I hope the DVDs are region free so you can enjoy them. Any clue if & when Bag of Bones will air in the U.K. or will it only be released on DVD?
