    The story I found interesting, just the remarkable way in which many books play a part in things you would least expect.
    Thank you all for the appreciation of the provenance, not just the book.

    The conversation, the negotiation, and the acquisition all had to be equally pleasurable and exciting. Congratulations on another superb pickup. So very happy for you!

    How fun that this was acquired directly! To be able to have a conversation with the original owner about its provenance and have her share her memories of him adds great character to this book. Congratulations on this great find, the interesting conversations it has already provided, and those it will surely stimulate again in the future.

    Thanks to Jeff, FlyerPhan (My apologies I do not know your name), Paul and Tim.
    It was an interesting and alternative form of negotiation. I am certain that Tolkien never envisaged his signature as a bargaining chip for a new roof!!
    Apologies for bombarding this thread with Tolkien, some King next time round.

    No need to apologies Alec. It's your thread. Post whatever you like because I am sure to stop by when I see something new in here.

    First time for everything.
    Looking for a Signed Limited ‘Gunslinger’ with the limitation line blank. Still signed as before, but no designation of any kind.
    Price to be discussed, however I appreciate they are hard to find.
    Contact me on:
    elmsbooks.smith@gmail.com
    Kindest regards
    Alec.

    A fascinating artist who painted to further his book collection, one of the largest in Europe of its kind. Have a browse and see what you think of him and his concern for addicts and the 'human condition'. You should find some pictures of his library and what one collector can achieve in a short life.
    Maybe a little away from the usual thread, however we are all collectors.

    I am just having fun, looking through these remarkable books you have Alec, and this resonates so much. Totally get it.

    I think I need to spend a couple of hours taking photos and update my collection.

    Tomas recently sold one his site skcollector.com. He might be able to get you in touch with the buyer of that piece.

    David, thank you for taking time out to scroll through a few pages.
    Good to hear you appreciate the quote from R. O. Lenkiewicz. I feel the same way about it.

    Colin thank you for the heads up. As it happens I had already contacted Tomas at SK Collector.
    The book was most certainly a real gem.

    I was informed yesterday by Tony and Kim from Camelot, that I was eligible to purchase one of the lettered Subterranean Press copies of ‘Full Throttle’.
    Duly purchased and delighted to be receiving the anthology.
    Letter ‘K’.
    A big thank you to Camelot for this opportunity.
    Many will think the price is high, though as the curtain seems to be slowly closing on signed King material it is anybody’s guess where it settles.

    Congrats. And I do agree that King will be signing less and less. So I will also try to get them where I can. But again, congrats on getting a lettered.

    Many thanks Brian and Mike.
    Remarkable that everyone was unaware that King had signed as well.

    It would have been really crazy if he had signed a few random S/L's. I'm glad he approached it the way he did.
