Jonathan's Wants

Postby Jonathan » Sun 21 Aug, 2005 22:41:56

Mine are easy, they're the gaps left in the Heron set that they never did. I'm looking for nice UK Hutchison hardbacks with dustjackets to replace:

Star of Ill Omen (The Book Club hb, no date, with complete but worn dj)
Sixty Days to Live (nearly there: Hutchison hb, 1950 reprint '25th Thousand', no dj)
The Man Who Missed the War (The Book Club hb, 1946 'War Economy Standard', no dj)
Gunmen, Gallants and Ghosts (Arrow pb, 1968 reprint)

and while I have three of the reprinted Crime Dossiers, I'm still missing
Who Killed Roger Prentice?

I have a 1st ed Star of Ill Omen hardback that I was going to put on Ebay now I am fortunate to have a signed 1st. In fact, the book is in better nick than my signed copy. There is a bumped and bruised but unclipped dj too. Please contact me by private message if you would like further details. I would rather sell to a Library member than otherwise.
