    no it's not a secret. He bought my Chadbourne limited remarqued book set #3. Couldn't have gone to a better home as I am sure he will complete the set from Dave H (Overlook)
    "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

    I have enquired as to his numbers - I will let everyone know if he is happy to share this info.

    I have an update on TDT S/L #'s. The two sets are NOT all the same number. Set 1 is made up of 2 numbers and set 2 is made up of 3. I cannot divulge what those numbers are I am afraid as he does not want to be bombarded by requests. I appreciate that may be a blow to some of you that are searching for a specific number, but I have to honour his wishes.

    If you are searching for a specific # please PM ME with what the # is. I will collect these and at a later date pass them all on to him. In this way i can at least verify he doesn't have your number. (what happens if he does is another matter and we can deal with that at that point).

    I don't really expect that he has it but I've been on the lookout for DT2 #644 for many years. I also need A Storm of Swords #320. I have #53 to trade if I ever come across my number.

    That's one simply stunning collection Goblin, thanks for sharing Anon's goodies with us all (doesn't he write most of the 365 little quotes for the desk calendars used throughout the world - his name is hauntingly familiar to me)
    We all float down here!

    Been a while since I updated this thread, but a few of you may know that I have been trying to locate some copies of the Plant for Anonymouus's collection. Well it seems he has done quite well without me and just procured the following set. All 3 are part of the 200 s/l copies and although the numbers do not match, they are all from the same recipient, Christine Morgan who some of you will know was employed as SK's childrens nanny.

    Beautiful condition minor flaws only on Part 1, with wonderful dedications and contained in a custom slipcase:



    Plant part 1

    In addition to The Plant set, he has picked up some very nice additions to his collection, I'm sure we all recognize this first one...

    This is Letter U

    Much as I'd love to be posting these books in my own collection, its almost as good to enjoy them vicariously....

    It's been a while since I visited and I''m told there are a few more shelves of SK that have been added, hopefully I will get to see them all soon and update the thread with more new beautiful books.

    He has indeed - He already has 2 other books (one I know is a S/L Firestarter) that are also inscribed to Chris Morgan - pretty nice 'set'.

    Somehow I missed this thread when you first posted it. Had a look through it now. Very impressive collection. Wish I lived nearby. I'd come with you on your next visit. Thanks for posting it Simon.
