Default AMC Spring Harvest from the USA

Yesterday I received the "big bag with large box" containing the spring harvest I reaped in the US (on eBay and elsewhere) from my American agent


From top to bottom:
  • Analog 7 hc (Weyr Search), 1969
  • Children of the Future hc (Weyr Search), 1982
  • Science Fiction Tales hc (Smallest Dragonboy), 1977
  • Dragon's Fire ARC, 2006
  • Algol Starship magazine (On Pernography), 1978
  • Science Fiction Plus (Freedom of the Race), 1953
  • Dragonriders of Pern board game (the one I was still missing)
  • Dragonflight Ballantine mmp, 1968
  • The Hugo Winners II Sphere mmp (Weyr Search), 1973
  • Dragonflight Corgi mmp, 1970
  • Legends mmp (Runner of Pern) regular TOR ed., 1999
  • Get off the Unicorn Del Rey mmp, 1984
  • The Hugo Winenrs II Fawcett mmp (Weyr Search), 1973
  • Dragondrums, Simon & Schuster Aladdin imprint mmp, new
  • Dragonsong, Simon & Schuster Aladdin imprint mmp, new
  • Dragonsinger, Simon & Schuster Aladdin imprint mmp, new
  • Boxed set Del Rey mmp's Dragonflight, Dragonquest and The White Dragon, 1982
  • Moreta Del Rey mmp, 1984
  • L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future mmp (One thousand or so words of wisdom [?]), 1986
  • Bank Street Book of Fantasy (Smallest Dragonboy graphic), 1989
  • The White Dragon Del Rey hc

And while I am typing this the mailman delivered two mmp's from the UKamong which a not so rare UK Corgi Dragondrums paperback with full Steve Weston cover art that eluded me for such a long time (I saw many but not in the state I wanted it in: as good as new), and this one is!
The other one is a regular Corgi Moreta mmp with full Weston cover but with the white title lettering (1984) in stead of the red... am I a crazy collector or what?

Hey master book collector sir -- don't you recognize a trade paperback when you see it?

Already have, Becky

Yes, dear Cheryl, but I must honestly say that, despite the fact the Aladdin's are slightly larger than the average mmp, they don't strike me as TBP's. Apart from the larger size I always considered TBP's being a publication form taking place between hardcover and mmp, even though some US and sometimes UK sellers seem to merely consider the size and even call a book in A4 or letter size a TBP (I've seen the graphic novels seen called TBP), which IMHO is wrong. But if you can come up with a n official list what is considered what in the book trade...

Presumably you mean this version, which I believe to be the cover of the first UK paperback edition (I've got a second printing, from the same year, 1981):

I believe that this is the first Anne McCaffrey cover to be illustrated by Steve Weston.

There have been (at least) two other Corgi versions with full-cover Steve Weston art. (Apologies for the picture quality - I stole them from ebay auctions)


For completeness, the only other UK paperback cover version I know of is the hideous version from the mid 1990s

while the UK hardback looks like

Yes, I meant the first one (with the azure title); the other two paperbacks I am still looking for (the last one is still in stock but too expensive in my country, so waiting forma good ebay deal) and the hardcover I already have.
