    I finally did pick up a great copy of Dark Carnival from Gauntlet at a very nice price. I'm still dreaming of the Arkham House edition, but this will due thill I hit the Lottery. I'll post photos once it arrives.

    I would really like a lettered edition of The Passage but can't find any for sale. Not that I could afford it right now anyway. Also, firsts of the LOTR, Chronicles of Narnia, and Lord of the Flies.

    You can't find the lettered Passage yet, because it's not out yet. The book is still waiting on the tray cases to be made. Later this year I think. We might have left to sell though.

    Was just thinking what I would like to add to my collection today. Something that I could theoretically afford if I saved up a bit...

    The Talisman and Black House slipcase set from Donald M. Grant
    HC's of Song of Ice and Fire (books 2-4)
    HC's of The Dark Tower series (don't have to 1st's, just hardcovers)

    Hmm... I've always wanted an honest to goodness Stephen King autograph. In a book.

    1st UK/signed lord of the rings
    the stand coffin version
    three musketeers and the count of montecristo, the whole 1st edition book or one episode (both published weekly on newspapers(?) IIRC), but that would be abysmally expensive

    Update!

    Something of the above is on its way to me...

    Any of those you listed is fantastic! Congrats on taking off one from your list! (not that it helps any, two usually show up to fill the vacancy)

    Very nice! And hard to find in a decent dust jacket, too. Most I've seen online are signed. (The 1967 edition)

    The dust jackets in both cases are the reason I want them. I collect the illustrator... go figure.

    For me it probably would be a signed first edition of Robert Heinlein's "Stranger in a Strange Land"
    I read this book when I was 13 and it altered my perspective on the world around me
