Default US Continuum 1 hardcover

After Pern Crystal Singer is my favourite Anne McCaffrey series, so I ave come to collect those too (ok... and all the rest, but not officially )

I have three of the four Continuum US edition hardcovers, by the "mad anthoogist" Roger Elwood, but still miss out on the first volume in the series. Please alert me if you see it or contact me if you have one on offer?

These are the three I have:

Hi Hans,

I have the possiblity to buy this book:

Continuum 1 Hard Back´with cover 1975 (2)

No picture before buy, but (2) means good (1) being perfect.

Would you like it?

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."

Nina, if it is hardcover published in 1975 it is the W.H. Allen one, published in the UK.

The one I am lacking is the 1974 hardcover published by Berkley Putnam. That's the one fitting in the series pictured in the first post.

So, very kind and great of you to remember me and go through the trouble to post but unfortunately it isn't the book I am looking for. Pity though, if it had been it would have been great
