Default Wanted: Pern in several languages

We've pretty much settled on our Lost in Translation panel for Weyrfest, and I'd like to start getting my hands on various copies of Dragonflight. The languages I KNOW I'll want are Spanish, French, and German; odds are good we'll need a copy in Russian and I'll suspect we could use one in Italian.

Anyone? Bueller?

If you mean real book copies eBay is your friend.

I tried eBay, but eBay USA, anyway, didn't appear to have any copies in French, Spanish, German, etc. I did find Drachengesang, but that's Dragonsong and I'd like Dragonflight. I had more luck on eBay France, etc., but I'm apprehensive about ordering from overseas, since that's so much more expensive.

There's nothing obvious on ebay.de for Dragonflight. If you get so desperate you'd fork out for a new copy + postage, let me know.

Maybe I'm stating the obvious but...

If you search eBay (include germany/europe in the search!) you need to search for: "Die Welt der Drachen" as that is the German title.

On eBay US search for seller "dikrang" (his ebay shop) for Russian Pern books.

French books are regulary offered on ebay.fr but you are right, postage is atrocious!) and on amazon.com (where they tend to be expensive).

Spanish is and always has been rare on eBay.Though there recently has been a reprint (I posted about that in the collectors forum).

There is a DRoP trilogy in Russian on ebay right now. If you need help finding it, I can send a link.
