    Default Ludlum - Bourne Ultimatum

    I think my last post got deleted, perhaps it was in the wrong area? If you're going to delete this one can you let me know why, admins?

    Anyways, what my original post was in regards to was the Signed/Limited/Numbered first edition of "The Bourne Ultimatum" by Robert Ludlum. I haven't seen any offered or sold anywhere on the net, and I was wondering if anyone knew the approximate value of this book?

    I believe your first post on this subject was deleted accidentally. Our apologies for that.


    You might try ABE Books and sort by highest price first. Good luck!

    E Taylor.
    Two apologies from me. I accidently deleted (and could not retrieve) your post, and failed to contact you to ask you to repost. I had hoped that a backup on the server could retrieve it, but it appears the backup is for the entire site, and we can't just pick one post out of it.
    I checked ABE, and at this time see no listing for a S/L of TBU. A 1st edition trade certainly is pricey @$400, although sometimes prices on ABE are high.
    Hopefully someone else here is more familiar with the value and will assist.

    Yah, all I've ever been able to find even a listing of its existence online, I was hoping when the movie was released one might be offered for sale, but if one was, I didn't see it.

    Default Other authors you collect

    I'm curious what additional authors other members collect. A special focus, such as Bob's Dracula collection, also counts.

    I really only buy a couple of limited books a year, so my collection is small, but growing.
    I've slowly been adding a few Bradbury S/Ls to my collection(I think I have 5 now) and also have several from Anne Rice. I also have a Vonnegut and a few signed books from various authors that aren't very well known.
    I'm not really focused on King like the majority of the board. My main interest is the Tower series, beyond that, I just collect authors that I like without worrying about what they'll be worth in 5 or 10 years.

    I collect quite a few small press publishers.

    Richard Laymon (20-25 items, 15+ signatures, several S/L's)
    Ray Garton (12 or more items, 6 signatures, all S/L's)
    Steve Gerlach (4 S/L's)
    Mike Arnzen (12 or more items, all signed)
    Joe Hill (Most of his stuff, only 2 S/L's)

    Other odds and ends--I've got some (outdated) pics in my collection threads.

    I don't actually collect other authors but I do try to get a book signed of every author I like.
    I have books signed by Koontz, Jack Vance, Richard Matheson, Arturo Perez-Reverte, Orson Scott Card, Joe Hill and others. The first one I had was one from John Saul.
    I'm still missing some: Arthur Conan Doyle, Alexandré Dumas, Edgar Allan Poe (tought guys these ones... ). I'm still looking for a Dan Simmons signed book.
    Wanted list:
    The girl who loved tom gordon ARC with King's letter
    The Plant #3 Unsigned.

    Other than King and Hill, I collect the S/Ls of Koontz's Odd Thomas books. My other signed books are just a random mix from authors I like

    Yep, King is the author I collect the most, but it's also because he has the most stuff out there.

    After King I try to collect everything by Ray Bradbury, Neil Gaiman and Charles de Lint. I have pretty large collections by all three, and love their work.

    I would say I'm an avid collector of King, Gaiman, de Lint and Bradbury, and would consider that I have pretty impressive collections by all authors (although my King collection gets stomped by some here, lol).

    And then on a smaller scale I collect Dan Simmons, F. Paul Wilson, Brian Lumley, H. P. Lovecraft and Joe Lansdale. But these collections pale in comparison to the other 4 authors.

    I showed my Bradbury and Gaiman collections on the Dark Tower.net a year ago. I'll try to come up with pictures, again.

    Dan Simmons has been mentioned quite often on this site and DT.N. I'll have to check his work out sometime. Any suggestions?

    I'll have to take some new photos soon and get them posted.

    Aurora, I have a lot of Frank Herbert paperbacks, but haven't had a chance to read most of them yet. I read his Dune novels a couple of years ago and that was all I've had. Then I went to the local library sale last fall and picked up about eight of his other books.

    Then, read The Terror. Excellent story, IMO.

    I'd love to see your Gaiman collection!

    Unfortunately, I don't have any signed or limited edition King books, but I do have a few signed (and one personalized) Chuck Palahniuk 1st editions from meeting him at a signing. Also, I have a couple John Douglas books from meeting him at various signings (he's a former FBI serial killer profiler who has written several books on his career).

    That's the closest I have to a worthwhile book collection.

    - Robert Ludlum's Bourne Trilogy (Signed first of Identity, Signed Limited first of Supremacy, Signed Limited Numbered first of Ultimatum)

    -Thomas Harris - first editions of all five of his books, however as of yet all are unsigned

    -Various signed and limited first editions from authors such as Robert McCammon, Brian Keene, Brian Hodge, Joe Hill, Tom Clancy, Nelson Demille and others.

    -Limited Edition story collections such as The Crow: Shattered Dreams and Broken Lives and JK Potter's Embrace the Mutation.

    -Various art books by Michael Whelan

    -Assorted leather books from Easton Press, Franklin Library, and a few that I've had rebound myself.

    -And any other first edition or signed book that tickles my fancy!

    I have a signed Stardust and Coraline, by Gaiman, which has really given me the incentive to expand my Gaiman collection.

    In general though, I tend to collect (and aim to collect) special editions of any book that I have particularly enjoyed.
