Keep searching and save your pennies and one day you will have what you want. It may take a while tho, but you will find bargains out there!

Keep a "look out" at library sales, op shops, garage sales etc. I once found an ex-library 1st edition of "Dragonsong" at my local library then someone brought it up in a "Collecting highlight" and I went "I've got that and didn't know that I had one" but that was before I started to read all the highlights so you'll find them helpful too

No problem-o. It's why Becky, Cheryl and Hans bring them up so the rest of us know what to look for but then sometimes someone comes along and finds a book or perhaps a different cover and makes us think too! I think Priscilla did that, the other day when she went to the bookbarn and found some books she didn't have and was willing to share the photos of them. She had one that now I've got to go looking for and I never heard of it before so there you go. So it does pay to go looking in unexpected places

Green Re: Pern Hardcovers (for now)

I'm relieved that you like the books and that they arrived safely! I noticed that you don't have Hershey down there and thought it would be fun to add it! It is my standard go-to-local-gift since it is made in my neck of the woods! I know some people poo poo Hershey and prefer Cadbury, but I thought, hay who would turn down chocolate, chocolate's chocolate, right? And if you didn't like it, you could give it to your hubby, because if he's anything like mine, he'll eat anything! Anyways...Thanks for the trade!

Samsara, please update your list so we know what to look for????? Just curious because you've done a few trades with people and I'd like to know what to look for as I'm thinking of having a look for myself and if I can find a few for me and a few for you, it'll save us both on p&h Up to you anyway. Willing to do trades as there may be a few things over in WA that I'm unable to get here in Viccy and vice versa.

Just reread my post above and if it sounds a little quirky, hope you understand it all.

Hey Jube, your post wasn't quirky at all, on the contrary I think your suggestion holds a lot of merit! Give me a day or two to revise my list, and I will definately get back to you! Also make you sure you let me know what you are after! I must be honest, Perth doesn't have a huge amount to offer, especially in the way of 1st ed Pern books, but I have seen some 1st ed HC of some of Anne's other works around the place... mostly things like Pegasus series, some Crystal books, and some ship books... and maybe one or two other bits and pieces... Let me know what you want and I will have a look for you!

Definitely going to look on my bookshelves for sure. Living in a small country town with a population of 700, one doesn't always get a chance to find things around here. To find anything, in most instances, I've got to travel to the 2 nearest "big" towns to find something good and usually the best finds are when I go to Melbourne but that's 3 1/2 hours away to really look properly. My hardcovers are a mixed bag at the moment so I'll have to let you know tomorrow okay - I know I've got 4 spare copies at the moment (1 HB and 3 PBs - reading copies only) to swap and happy to do a trade - for a full list of what I'm after! Thanks!

Okay here is my revised list of Pern Hardcovers that are still on my wishlist:

Dragonquest (any HC will do for now, the older the better of course)
White Dragon (UK or US 1st ed, or both)
Dragonsong (any HC will do for now, the older the better of course)
Dragonsinger (any HC will do for now, the older the better of course)
Moreta (UK 1st ed)
Dragons Kin (US 1st ed)
Masterharper of Pern (UK 1st ed)
Dragon's Fire (UK 1st ed)
Dragon's Blood (UK or US 1st ed, or both)
Dragonholder
A Diversity of Dragons
A life with Dragons by Robin Roberts

It is a lot of books I know! Hans, if any of these books are on the list you are preparing for me, please let me know... Thanks..

I don't have a lot available for trade at the moment, but like I said I have seen a few things around Perth (mostly non pern HC's). I do have available in my possesion now:

Crystal Line (1st ed UK HC)
Freedoms Landing (1st ed US HC)

Okay so there it is... see what you guys can do, and once I know what you are looking for, I will see if I can find it! Happy hunting!

It's Pegasus in flight but it doesn't have a dustjacket and someone must have scribbled in it before I got it, hence saying reading copy only - more for one's enjoyment then for any "pride and joy" on the bookshelf.

Yes please Hans! Jube, you can take those 2 off my list! I have a reading copy of Pegasus in Flight though... if you need a good one Jube, I think I might be able to get you a decent HC of that one...

It's okay, Samsara, I have the omnibus edition of it, along with Pegasus in space which is in good condition so for the moment, No and thanks for thinking of me as I'm happy with having that edition only.

You should check Amazon.com for that, Samsara. Sometimes they have them in stock for the normal price.

And it seems they do now! Grab your chance! It costs only $7 (ex postage).
