Default Who collects foreign AMC books?

Who collects Anne's books in other languages? Maybe not to read but possibly for the covert art or because of collectors fever

I currently have editions having been published in:
  • United States
  • United Kingdom
  • The Netherlands
  • Germany
  • France
  • Finland
  • Czecho-Slovakia; now Czech Republic
So I've gota long way to go since there's a lot more different language editions around. The emphasis lies on Pern books but I don't scorn any other title

I think this deserves a *bump* to stop it falling off the page

I have copies of some of Anne's books in English, American, German, French, Dutch and Hungarian .

Mmm.... I wonder if they're available in Norwegian? *goes off to check as it would be great to be in a position to astound my Norwegian teacher by being able to translate the texts into English without hesitation * She doesn't need to know that I'm reprising the English texts I know so well by heart

Well? She claims? Do you think she'll pulling your leg?

I got all the French paperbacks (pocket books) except for three titles. I posted about them in here.

I would like some hardbacks and especially the early editions of Dragonflight and Dragonquest - I like the artwork; but I have never been able to find any Pern book in second hand French bookshop, although I must admit that the best ones are to be found in Paris and I haven't been there since my honeymoon in 1979

My friend is a real Francophile and holidays there for two weeks every year without fail....I'll ask her to have a look around the book shops (which she will visit anyway!) and keep her eye out for them. Are there any others that you want? Just let me know. Shes going late summer this year so it might be a while!

Nope, just the ones I mention in my posts, and thanks for mentioning the titles to your friend. IF she finds any, do ask her/him to post them to me while still in Europe

I don't have any hardbacks in French and I would love to have them, but for those I would need to know their price first...
