Ach, schön! I am sure Strange Tales had much better paper quaility than its competitors. Many issues have white paper.

Congrats on finding that tough one!

Added a few titles since last time I posted. Nothing rare, but I've got most of his work by this point. I'm not good at all with a camera I'm afraid.

Cool!  B)

 

I owned all of those (except the Gollancz) until the Flood of '12.  Good stuff.

Found this at the bookstore last night. Only $6! It's illustrated throughout by Marcus Boas, and is in great interior shape.

And here is another one, (with a little help from Middleman Theagenes): the ultra-scarce TV Boardman edition of Conan the Conqueror.

This is a UK hardcover reprint of the Gnome Press Conan the Conqueror 1954, mostly photo-offset, but not entirely.

I really lke the "Prehistoric Fantasy from the HyborEan Age" (not "Hyborian). Plus the mention of further books, which never materialized.

And lookit that Conan in pseudo-Roman armor!

This book is tough as hell (try to find a copy on ABE if you don't believe me!) and in a über-nice dustjacket, it was mission impossible.

And since impossible is not French...

Very nice! Thank you!  I googled it and you're right. Very scarce. Even on Abebooks nowhere to be found. A page full of some but with a different sleeve with a completely different picture on front.

 

Yours has to be worth thousands of dollars!

 

I hope to one day find a REH gem somewhere.

 

Please keep em coming! :)

Yeah, it is really scarce (though not in the thousands of dollars range). When you don't find any copy of a book on ABE, it should tell you something.

There was one dealer from Canada had a copy for sale for $750 if memory serves a couple years ago, but it was far from being that nice.

The copy you saw with the different cover was very probably the Gnome edition, also pricey but much more common. In fact both Theagenes and I have insanely high grade copies.

Damn! That takes me back to when I was just shy of ten years old. The Parsons Public Library copy. The first prose Conan I ever read.  :D

 

BTW, for anyone wanting to read up on the Gnome Press editions:

Patrice, Is this the one that was on eBay a few weeks ago? I saw it but post-Christmas poverty meant I had to let it slip by. I was wondering if someone from the forum had snapped it up!

 

I'm very jealous but happy that it went to someone I know will appreciate it as much as I would have. I need to take some photos and then I'll post some more recent acquisitions soon.

 

Bradley.

I finally got around to taking some photos.

 

Bison023_zps9e3dd529.jpg

Does anyone know why these are so expensive? I now only have to get Stranger to complete the set. There is a copy on eBay for about $150 and a Boxing Stories for $140 but there is also a Riot for only $35. I guess I'll wait for a less expensive copy to come my way.

 

I now only need issue 6 to complete my Cross Plains collection

CrossPlains1_zpscaae0ec9.jpg

 

CrossPlains2_zps25026cda.jpg

 

CrossPlains3_zps682e8815.jpg

 

I'm pleased about this Bran Mak Morn

BranMakMorn012_zpsf60cca74.jpg

There's one of these on eBay at the moment for $650 so I was either very lucky or that one is wildly overpriced.

 

And I've been looking for a Grim Land for a while

KingsServiceGrimLand_zps213d232f.jpg

 

I also picked up a Writer in the Dark but not one of the Red Rat covers

WriterOfTheDark028_zpse0c87852.jpg

 

Another ARC to add to the collection

SwordWoman1A_zps0f3377c4.jpg

 

I finally bought an Ultimate Triumph at a good price

UltimateTriumph017_zps0e9e4d1f.jpg

 

 

That's about it, all my other recent purchases have been some nice Tolkien box sets and some Terry Pratchett 1st's and Limited Editions.

Bradley.

 

Patrice, I tried changing from links to images but as I feared I exceeded the number of images I was allowed so I'm splitting the post.

Patrice that is a beauty!  FWIW I had all the Gnome Press Editions. But sold them off when the Wandering Star Conan books came out. I really don't miss them.

 

I will try to "show my Howards" soon. Just been too busy.

 

Theagenes and Patrice must have some REALLY DEEP pockets.


"There's nothing in the universe cold steel won't cut," answered
Conan. "I threw my ax at the demon, and he took no hurt, but I might
have missed in the dusk, or a branch deflected its flight. I'm not
going out of my way looking for devils; but I wouldn't step out of my
path to let one go by."

Rees:

nice acquisitions!

"Bran Mak Morn: a Play" goes anywhere between $50 to $90 in perfect condition. The guy asking $650 is dreaming.

The hardcovers of the Bisons were probably produced in very small quantities; they really are somewhat hard to come by, but I would advise patience.

And howabout tweaking those photobucket links to include them on the forum pg instead of having us click on them? (try to edit your post by adding a pair of [img] / [/ img] before and after your links, that should do the trick, I think)

Cromsguts: If I remember well, both Jeff and I explained a few pages back that we don't have deep pockets, as in "not at all". There *are* a few items for which I paid a good chunk of money, but for the immense majority, I was lucky and/or patient. Mostly I am good at finding stuff in odd places and at a good price.
