Default My collection.....or a small part of it

This is just the top shelf of one bookcase. I ran out of time and patience with opening and looking in all the books. I did this a few years ago...but I guess that is one file that was corrupted and then deleted when I got that nice pretty infiltration and self-replicating worm.......

Edited on 13APR06 @ 1800 to include all my Anne McCaffrey works....shorted to only title, year and edition. I dont have a way of determining condition...a grade scale. I know how to do that in coins...but not books. All books are US publications. Paperbacks are in blue typeset. Black typeset are hardbacks.

Default Re: My collection.....or a small part of it

Uhm, you need not be that extensive, Dyna. The collectors here know who did the covers etc. A simple title, year/edition/state (hc, mmp etc.) and mentioning from which country (US, UK, other) would be enough and would save you a lot of work.

When I said mentioning prices I meant prices of items you bought on eBay or in second hand books. That's how we can learn averages or what is cheap for the rarer stuff and what not. See for instance the archive of Collecting Highlights in which I covered for instance A Diversity of Dragons not so long ago with (from the top of my head) prices lower than the one you quote. This way we can establish price ranges and get to know what is fair for a book in a certain condition.

Though your effort is very much appreciated, don't get me wrong.

Umm...yeah I tend to overindulge. This was a cut & paste from my documents that I have all this information stored on. I wasnt about to select only the titles....so much easier to copy & paste.

Dyna, Trust me you are in the lovely land of the extreme collector(looking in Hans, and Cheryl's direction), you will find as you travel around in here that your collection is lacking a number of very interesting additions. Just like many of us have found out, when we came in here thinking we had most all of Anne's books that there were to be had. Happy collecting.

Okay - I just updated and edited by collection. See above edited list for changes. I think I found them all...but my mom occassionally takes one or two from time to time to read so she may have some scattered in her house. Its library donation week, so Im off tomorrow to rescue the analogs (dated back to 1958) and my other Anne McCaffrey books.

Cheerio,
Dyna
