It's a bit pricey for me right now as I'm eyeing on some other books but it will be on a to get list down the road. Both books do look stunning together.
>5 EclecticIndulgence: Mine has already dispatched ;) also added The Golem for good measure.
POE has a illustration of a crow in every beginning of a story/poem and a skull at the end. Dracula has a capitals introducing each journals.
Dracula is one I have a few copies of mainly because I want the different illustrations and well...it's a classic. My favourite one is Centipede Press edition illustrated by Greg Hildebrandt coming close to second is EP. Third would be Folios and last would be B&N, well this one is not illustrated.
I can't agree with you more. You defiantly have to pick up Hound before they sell out. The paper is exquisite, and I like the use of the grey ink and eveb the offset print which has been so controversial. I haven't pick up War of the Worlds yet. I also thought it an odd addition to the group (or non-group), but may have to add it to the list.
perhaps in particular the signature page!
Illustrations IMO looks great but the price has gone up in this series. Not sure if I'll pick this up maybe I will in the far far future just to match the others but I have the Centipede Press edition and thought about getting the Hand & Eye Letterpress which looks like a lovely edition.
I paid $500 earlier this year on eBay. Congratulations on being patient!
It would be really cool to see The War of the Worlds resurrected. I have no hope for A Christmas Carol.
"While we wait for your order to finish processing, we thought you might be interested in seeing THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES, an item that other customers like you have purchased."
I decided to try one more time using a different browser (firefox instead of chrome) ... same result.
I want to try safari ... but have a feeling it won't work.
I recall this happening one time in the past and switching browser worked.
Watch tomorrow I wake up with 4 $71 charges on my credit card.
Hopefully this is just a glitch and not a telling sign that there were only a few copies available.
Either way ... congrats to Wootle for gettin his!
Hopefully we won't have a bunch of return/exchanges with these due to qc issues.
Guess I'll be calling first thing in the morning to cancel (or maybe I'll keep them just incase of qc issues).
I am emotionally scathed from past EP qc issues.
Fortunately, defects have been rare in these illustrator signed editions, although a few problems have been noted in this forum.
>37 jroger1: ... I think I'm either unlucky with EP as of late or just have gotten pickier ... the last half dozen of my EP DLE orders have had to be replaced between 1 and 3 times each.
None of the DLE ever come back do they?
I just can’t bring myself to spend ~$1500 second hand for this ……
Also, I don't necessarily suggest you pay even this, but there's a sealed copy on eBay right now being offered by a professional seller for $995.
However, your best bet is probably to join the Easton Press Buy/Sell groups on Facebook (there are a couple). You have a better chance of scoring a copy there for a reasonable price with some patience. There are even a few dealers who will search out a copy for you if you tell them you're interested in one and give them a reasonable spending limit.
I don't keep track of when DLE's get their second printings - maybe someone else can recall. If it has, then it probably won't come back.
However, there's always an excellent chance that EP will create a different DLE of the same title if the title is a popular classic. Dracula is, so I would bet that some new variant DLE will eventually come along. You have to get used to thinking in terms of waiting in multiple years, though.
Probably not going to be able to get it at that price a year later though. Haha
Thanks, but the version by Amaranthine doesn't really do it for me. I did try to get the Power of Darkness by Centipede Press and I'd check back almost every day, but turns out it came and went on a day I had to travel for work and missed out on it :/
Part of the apprehension buying second hand is not knowing the seller, beit facebook or forums.
ebay is gonna be the safest but man, are they expensive.
