    Default Book Collection : jonp

    Hi All,

    I am new to the board but have been a Stephen King and other authors book collector (Dean Koontz, Clive Barker, Joe Hill, James Herbert and Peter Straub) since Gerald's Game in 1992. I have looked at all the impressive book collections on this thread and I decided to start my own. I have concentrated on UK Hardback firsts (and US hardback 1st if no available UK version) and then moved on to S/L and the occasional lettered. Over the last 23 years my collection has expanded needing lots of new bookcases in their own room which are overflowing!! Hate to think how much I have spent in that period.
    All the best
    Jon

    Thanks. I slowly got them and in best condition I could. They have never been read as far as I can tell.

    GREAT collection! I love your UK editions - you haven't neglected the variant editions either as far as I can tell (like the Nightmares and Dreamscapes states with different DJ prices, Rose Madder et cetera). Lovely condition as well.

    My most prized UK firsts (The Stand I only got last week - a little wear and a small tear on the front of the dust jacket but very happy)

    Nice collection. That looks to be one of the best UK Carrie's that I have seen.

    Holy Hidden Collections Batman! That is awesome.
    I have been trying to round out my UK 1sts recently but only have 2 of the early 5. Yours are in wonderful condition!

    Did you get that Night Shift from eBay last week? The one that was really low until the last minute and then went for £415?
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Thanks,
    No, I did not bid, but I was watching it. I bought my copies of Salem's Lot, Night Shift and Danse Macabre a few years ago at, I think, from mansionhousebooks.com. They were in almost as new condition.

    Yes, Greg Hurlstone had a wonderful collection. Unfortunately I did not yet collect (in the true sense of the word) when he started selling. Great guy to deal with and bomb-proof packaging!

    Impressive indeed.

    I know not a lot of people are into them, but those UK limited editions look really nice. I always thought their design had a timeless, classy look.

    Thanks. I wish they were the real thing - but alas only the unsigned proofs.
