I'll flesh this out further in the coming days. If anyone knows the stock number for American Gods, I would like to add that. And, if anyone has all available titles and can take a pic, please send it to me and I'll add it at the top.

toukokuu 22, 2019, 12:12 pm

I wish LibraryThing would make shared/group catalogs a thing. These lists could be treated as queryable, sortable tables, or at least they'd be assembled in one spot.

toukokuu 22, 2019, 1:33 pm

>3 treereader: I second the sentiment. I was just looking for information on the EP Charles Dickens DLE releases ... in particular ... the parts version of pickwick papers ... wanted to know what the original asking price was. I was unable to find any information ... and it took me a bit to even find that original post of EP DLE's here on LIbraryThing ... it has pictures of each title with several information links (I'd post a link ... but I can again not find it). lol

I sometimes think I'm the only one not finding this place easily navigable and searchable.

But it's still a lovely forum of information regardless.

Muokkaaja: toukokuu 23, 2019, 8:47 pm

The link for Wootle's excellent DLE thread:

Muokkaaja: toukokuu 23, 2019, 10:23 pm

I enjoy reading through the DLE threads from the beginning. Starting in 2010 with this thread DLE 1 up to the current thread DLE 8

toukokuu 23, 2019, 10:41 pm

In case anyone wants to partake.


toukokuu 23, 2019, 11:55 pm

>6 Wootle: thank you for those links ... i will keep those bookmarked from now on.

So In all of those ... I did a quick "find" search for "pickwick" and nothing shows. Is there no thread information on the Dickens Pickwick papers

Trying to find information on this title ...

stuff like original release date ... original price ... how many were printed ... and if there are any other titles from EP that are similar to this ... multi parts in a case?

Muokkaaja: toukokuu 24, 2019, 1:37 am

>8 thisGuy33:
I have a copy of Pickwick, but I don’t keep a record of sale prices. It wasn’t a limited edition, so I doubt that the number printed is available. The ebay listing calls it a limited edition with a certificate, but mine didn’t come with one. I would ask the seller to look at his certificate and tell you what it says.

It is a strange publication. There are no EP markings (including the date) on any of the 19 parts, so as far as I can tell they could be mistaken for the originals. Later EP Dickens bound the parts together. The paper has a soft, flimsy feel, especially the covers, probably simulating the original.

toukokuu 24, 2019, 2:11 am

>9 jroger1: thank you so much for helping me a bit with the information. That is very informative. I can't believe I can't find much info about this. Even on ebay there are no copies "sold" and the three or four that are for sale currently have been up for quite a while.

I've made a few offers over the last few months and no one was budging from their $350 - $399 asks.

But the other day someone did finally come down to $225 so I grabbed it.

I'm not sure If I'm gonna like it (the format that is ... I'm sure I'm gonna enjoy the read cuz I'm a pretty big Dickens fan as of late). I think it being in parts might be fun to feel like it's being read as it was published back in the day.

I absolutely love my Copperfield DLE how it is made up of parts but bound in that beautiful half leather binding.

When you say "Later EP Dickens bout the parts together" ... does this mean EP offered a version of Pickwick that was similar to the David Copperfield Half Leather bound parts DLE?

What are your thoughts on the Pickwick version. Do you feel it's worth $225 or $600? ... I know that's very subjective.

I personally feel the Copperfield DLE is easily worth the $500 to $600 asking price on ebay (I grabbed a copy for half that price but it took me a while to get someone to go that low).

Any thoughts on any of the Dickens DLE's would be great if you don't mind sharing.

Also on a side note ... I love the Twain DLE's as well and have acquired most of them ... but i'm trying to grab Prince & Pauper ... but the only two on ebay have been on ebay for a while now and neither will budge on price ($599). Someone did grab one for $350 at the beginning of the year ... which is about the price i usually like to pay for these DLE's ($250 - $400) ...

... my question is (if you have any of the Twain DLE's) ... is the Prince & Pauper just like the other Twain versions ... and do you want to sell your copy. lol :)

Sorry for all the words ... but you are the only person who's offered info on this.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

toukokuu 24, 2019, 2:19 am

>8 thisGuy33: Pickwick Papers isn't considered a DLE, so thus not on the list. When it was released there wasn't a lot of interest shown here. I do remember a short discussion somewhere but it wasn't much.

toukokuu 24, 2019, 2:24 am

>11 Wootle: thanks for those nuggets of info. Interesting ... it looks like such a unique version I would have assumed it was a "Deluxe" version or a DLE.

I only started acquiring/enjoying/reading/collecting EP titles over the last year or two so I was late to all the wonderful Dickens and Twain EP offerings (and have had to pay a bit of a premium on ebay).

I wonder why there wasn't much interest in this when it came out.

Muokkaaja: toukokuu 24, 2019, 7:56 am

>10 thisGuy33:
I’m not aware that EP offered an edition of Pickwick with the parts bound together, but it’s possible. I’m pretty sure they didn’t produce any other titles in the “loose” format, though. Pickwick was offered several years before the DLE series began. I haven’t purchased any other EP Dickens, because once a long time ago Everyman’s Library offered a nearly complete set of them for $5.00/volume. I think they were rebinding them and wanted to get rid of their old stock. I do own the “Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court” and the ”Pudd’nhead Wilson” DLEs and enjoyed reading them. No “Prince and Pauper,” though.

Pickwick is probably worth what you paid just for its uniqueness, but it isn’t my favorite Dickens work. Also, be prepared for an annoyingly small font. When you receive your copy, please let me know if there is a certificate and what it says.

toukokuu 24, 2019, 9:49 am

>12 thisGuy33: "I wonder why there wasn't much interest in this when it came out."

It's probably because most of us who want more than just the 3-5 most popular DIckens titles have already bought or are looking to buy one of the complete sets, which will include Pickwick. Those who crave DLE treatment are only going to pay attention to a standalone Pickwick if it is indeed a DLE.

toukokuu 24, 2019, 2:15 pm

>13 jroger1: Thank you for the timeline info on Pickwick being offered pre DLE offerings I didn't not know that. Yankke and Pudd'nhead wilson are great DLE's in my opinion (just picked up copies of both in the last few months) ... I really like the size and feel of both (the soft leather covers are great). And all those original drawings/illustrations make it so fun to read.

I was definitely hesitant on grabbing Pickwick (based mainly on the many mixed reviews ... but it intrigued me reading so many reviews saying how it was Dickens first release and though it starts a bit slow and loose ... you can see where he becomes "Dickens" after a few volumes. I thought it would be fun to see that transition ... and the format of this EP release piqued my interest. The possibility of small fonts are always worrisome. As Joe joe pesci said in my cousin vinnie ... it might be time for thicker glasses. :)

>14 treereader: Agreed completely. In fact ... my growing fascination with Dickens and my enjoyment of reading titles multiple times ... I decided to start collecting a complete set (along with keeping all my EP DLE's). I went with the FS set with all the fun cover artwork. I ended up picking up this collection and am hoping to add the rest at a later date.

toukokuu 24, 2019, 2:21 pm

On a side note ... I apologize for hijacking and redirecting this forum post to Dickens stuff.

As for the EP Neil Gaiman titles ... I'm super excited to see more and hopefully watch this post grow.

I picked up graveyard a while back (have yet to read it) and of course I just grabbed Coraline now. But my introduction to Gaiman recently(yes, I'm late to the reading party with almost everything ... just started the reading hobby recently) ... was diving into American Gods and Anansi Boys (I grabbed the FS versions) ... and I am halfway thru American Gods and absolutely love it.

I'm dying to finish reading AG so I can start watching the show with Ian McShane ... one of my all time favorite actors!

toukokuu 24, 2019, 2:34 pm

Question about the EP current offering of Neil Gaiman stardust. I know some of these titles are simply leather bound reprints with an autograph. But graveyard book actually had illustrations throughout (if I recall correctly). I've been on the shelf picking up a copy of stardust cuz I think I'm over spending premium prices for just books with signatures.

Anyone know if there are illustrations similar to graveyard? or is stardust just a leather bound signed book.


toukokuu 24, 2019, 3:09 pm

I did just read that in the original "discussion" post for stardust someone mentioned "I like the illustrator as well" so I assume there are a few illustrations. Wondering if it is similar to graveyard (in the amount of illustrations) or if it's just two or three.

Alright ... I'm chatty today.


toukokuu 24, 2019, 4:02 pm

>18 thisGuy33:

Other than some beginning of chapter motif style illustrations, 'Stardust' does not have illustrations.

toukokuu 24, 2019, 4:04 pm

>17 thisGuy33: Stardust has no illustrations. It does have chapter flourishes replicating the cover. Coraline will have illustrations of course, as Dave McKean also illustrated Graveyard Book.

toukokuu 24, 2019, 4:14 pm

I've added some photos to the Stardust album.

toukokuu 24, 2019, 4:25 pm

>18 thisGuy33: Better that you be chatty about something you are passionate about than this forum wither and die.

toukokuu 24, 2019, 5:24 pm

>15 thisGuy33:
A current listing on states that the publication date of Pickwick was 1990, and that it came with a certificate. This particular certificate has a “serial number” of 891.

toukokuu 24, 2019, 6:13 pm

>21 Wootle: thanks for the added photos ... and i've been hunting around for a term to describe my book fascination ... i was using obsession and addiction ... but I much prefer your "passionate"


>23 jroger1: Thanks for that link ... I did not see that. Had I ... I would have probably picked it up from there instead of wasting weeks trying to haggle with ebay sellers.

>19 sdawson: Interesting ... based on an image i had seen which showed one or two illustrations and the fact that someone in the other post mentioned "I like the illustrator as well" ... It almost pushed me into pulling out the wallet again today for stardust. So thank you for that "save".

Like I said ... I'm starting to dial back my purchases and i was on the fence with stardust and fight club. Very interested in reading both ... but not so interested in paying a premium for a signature. Although I do love holding a good leather bound book with some clean and easy in the eyes print.

Muokkaaja: toukokuu 24, 2019, 6:38 pm

I've got an original Stardust, first printing EP if you want. It's got a small crease on the leather of the back cover-- I cannot tell you why. I bought the book in that condition when it was rare. Other than that, it is in excellent condition. Naturally, when it reprinted, I bought a new one. If you want it, PM and I'll make you a deal of one Gaiman fan to another. Like $25 shipped.

Edit: I don't read my EP editions of the books, so much better off with someone who will read it. Of course I can send pics.

toukokuu 24, 2019, 7:31 pm

>25 Roccosem: just PM'd ya

toukokuu 24, 2019, 9:19 pm

>25 Roccosem: Incredibly generous.

toukokuu 24, 2019, 9:36 pm

>27 Wootle: agreed ... hopefully I can return the favor or pay it forward in the future.

kesäkuu 5, 2019, 9:31 pm

Coraline photos have been added.

kesäkuu 5, 2019, 11:21 pm

Thanks for the photos, Wootle. I look forward to receiving my copy.

heinäkuu 18, 2019, 11:51 pm

Received a replacement copy of The Ocean At the End of the Lane. Original copy received a month ago was dark blue, newest copy is lighter blue. Anyone that received this originally in 2016, which color was it?

heinäkuu 19, 2019, 3:31 pm

>32 Wootle: My copy is more of a gray-blue, sort of a cross between the two books you're showing maybe a shade closer to the lighter copy. Bought in 2017.

heinäkuu 19, 2019, 11:23 pm

I have a copy of it when it was sold the first time and it’s more of what your copy on the right looks like

heinäkuu 19, 2019, 11:37 pm

Interesting, all the ebay copies seem to be the lighter blue as well. I was going to send the dark blue one back for damage, but perhaps it is a one of a kind and worth a fortune.

heinäkuu 20, 2019, 1:13 am

>35 Wootle:, at least a markup of an extra $500. Perhaps even $1Million.

syyskuu 1, 2020, 11:46 am

American Gods back in stock, but will not last for long. I wouldn't hesitate to order if you have any interest at all. Resellers are going to eat this one up quick, as aftermarket prices were very high over the last few years. And it's not like the author is becoming less popular.

syyskuu 1, 2020, 5:59 pm

I'm kind of surprised by this. I was hoping for a new signed edition of something else.

syyskuu 2, 2020, 9:49 am

>37 Wootle: Thanks for the heads up. i ordered, but had to call in the order. The website would not allow me to add it to my cart, and the website couldn't find it by the ID. We'll see.

syyskuu 3, 2020, 11:36 am

I was hoping for a signed 'Anansi Boys", since it's a kind of follow up to "American Gods".

syyskuu 11, 2020, 2:55 pm

Photos added to American Gods. Another noticed difference is the thickness of the book itself, this newer edition is much thicker than the original. There is added ornamentation to cover the extra width.

syyskuu 30, 2020, 11:11 am

Just ordered American Gods, which brings my collection of Gaiman EP titles up to the full set of six books. Was happy to see American Gods, as I missed it the first time around.

lokakuu 2, 2020, 5:08 am

>42 sdawson: Received my copy of American Gods as well. Quite a thick tome. I hope they also reprint Neverwhere, as I also missed this the first time as well, and the eBay prices are quite high.

lokakuu 2, 2020, 12:38 pm

I'm hoping EP reprints Stardust.

lokakuu 21, 2020, 11:29 am

Received mine as well yesterday. A very thick book.

lokakuu 23, 2020, 3:39 pm

What are the chances they'll reprint Graveyard Book?

lokakuu 23, 2020, 6:01 pm

>46 DanniLynn: I'd say, decent chances that they will reprint the Graveyard Book. They've now reprinted American Gods and Ocean at the End of the Lane. Neil is still around and willing to sign. The only difference is that Graveyard was also signed by Dave McKean, so I'm not sure they will get both of them to sign again or not. However, this is all conjecture as I really don't know what their plans really are.

lokakuu 23, 2020, 10:32 pm

Sorry to be ignorant are you located in Easton, PA?

lokakuu 23, 2020, 10:53 pm

>48 Whisper1:
Easton Press is located in Norwalk, CT. We are a group of book collectors who specialize in Easton Press editions.

Muokkaaja: marraskuu 7, 2020, 10:16 pm

>49 jroger1: An interesting question. For quite awhile I wondered whether Easton Press called themselves that after the small town of Easton, Connecticut, which is near Norwalk...but then I realized that more than likely it's down to Easton, Pennsylvania being home of the much-loved Franklin Library (the godfather of EP). Makes sense to me.

I'm really hoping they reprint The Graveyard Book next. Please..

joulukuu 23, 2020, 4:04 am

Thank you for letting us know about Anansi Boys. I’m hoping Neverwhere receives another go around.

joulukuu 23, 2020, 10:50 am

I think it's time for Gaiman to write a brand new original novel. It's been a while now. Maybe EP can do a signed first edition.

joulukuu 27, 2020, 10:11 am

The original Stardust was a collaboration between Charles Vess and Neil Gaiman. I think the illustrations are canonical. It sold out before it was ever published, but in case you are not aware, I will point you to what is easily the most beautiful Neil Gaiman book ever published

joulukuu 28, 2020, 7:27 am

>58 astropi: Beautiful edition. I think that if they had as thourough a preview as what Warwick has captured, they probably would have sold out even sooner. That is a really nice edition. I didn't buy a copy before hand but now am wishing I had.

joulukuu 28, 2020, 10:54 am

>59 hamletscamaro: Easton Press is a really nice edition, this edition is simply amazing. Letterpress, tipped in illustrations, amazing hand-bound cover. SIGH :)

joulukuu 28, 2020, 2:37 pm

>60 astropi: Yes, no denying it is a fabulous. However, between books from EP, books from Folio Society and a couple of other small presses, and several Limited Editions already moving through my bank account, I decided to fight FOMO and forgo following yet one more fine press. It looks like he had no problem selling out despite my sideline appearance. :)

Muokkaaja: joulukuu 28, 2020, 6:05 pm

>61 hamletscamaro: I know, always too many nice books, not enough time nor money. He was oversubscribed to the book by a long shot. People were complaining that they didn't get one, but alas, what can you do?

tammikuu 5, 2021, 5:17 pm

Just received my copy of "Anansi Boys" and as always, it's a beautiful edition. I like how the spine compliments "American Gods" since the stories take part in the same world and share some of the same characters. They look great together on the shelf. Signed by Gaiman on 10/10/2020 and the book copyright is 2021.

tammikuu 5, 2021, 6:00 pm

>63 Eastonorfolio:

So...I guess that's one way to make some money during a pandemic...sign stuff. I wonder how many other authors found opportunities like this and how many signed versions of other books both EP and other interesting publishers are going to be releasing in 2021.

elokuu 19, 2021, 11:49 am

Group photo at top updated to include Anansi Boys. Anansi Boys individual photo album updated with in person shots.

toukokuu 25, 2022, 12:59 pm

It looks like "The Graveyard Book" by Gaiman will be back in stock in June. Missed out the first time.

kesäkuu 9, 2022, 9:06 am

Does anyone know where to find a copy of "Neverwhere" that EP published in 2015? I wanted to finish my EP collection of Gaiman titles, but I am having trouble finding it on the secondhand market. It doesn't seem to pop up on auction sites very often.

kesäkuu 9, 2022, 9:12 am

>67 noodle242:

I'd save a search on Abebooks and Ebay, that way you get notified when a copy is listed and can react quickly.

Muokkaaja: kesäkuu 9, 2022, 11:14 am

>68 SF-72: Thanks for the tip. I have a search saved on both. I just didn't know if there were any other sites worth checking out.

Muokkaaja: kesäkuu 9, 2022, 3:52 pm

>69 noodle242: Join the Easton Press collector’s groups on Facebook (I have joined three of them). There are a couple of very good resellers on there that when they know what you are looking for will track them down for you. These are resellers who sometimes come into estate collections that are being sold off. I’ve had very good purchasing experiences with the ones that I have dealt with so far.

kesäkuu 9, 2022, 4:10 pm

>69 noodle242:

Etsy and sometimes get titles like these, Ardis Books have a small Easton Press department - those are the others I can think of, but chances there are probably smaller than on Ebay and Abebooks. Sometimes there's also a listing on amazon, though those are usually very expensive and they unfortunately removed the function that let you save a search.

heinäkuu 8, 2022, 12:22 pm

Just a FYI - I received a current list from Easton Press of upcoming titles with no availability dates. On it was this: (450-222) Fragile Things - Neil Gaiman

heinäkuu 9, 2022, 12:41 pm

I wonder how EP can call its edition of Henry Kissinger’s “Leadership” a first edition when Penguin Press published theirs last Tuesday. I have a copy. Must be some convolution of the English language.

heinäkuu 10, 2022, 11:22 pm

Hope it matches the previous Kissinger books

heinäkuu 17, 2022, 6:20 pm

It is now #7 on the New York Times nonfiction bestseller list, but there is still no sign that EP has published the “first edition.” How can that be?

heinäkuu 19, 2022, 7:52 pm

>78 jroger1: Yeah that is odd and your guess is as good as any. I received that list about two weeks ago and since then I've seen a couple of books appear recently under the What's New section on the EP website. So far, the releases from the list seem accurate, but without release dates. Maybe EP decided not to publish Leadership after all...Although honestly, I also wouldn't be surprised if it did end up on their website as a "Signed First Edition" either.

Muokkaaja: toukokuu 19, 6:24 am

Just a FYI for anyone interested. Easton Press released Gaiman's "Trigger Warning" in their Signed Modern Classics. However, they aren't making it "public", or at least haven't made any announcement for about a month, or so. I've had my copy for at least a month, but you have to call in and order it directly from EP. I don't know if they are planning to eventually put it under their "What's New" section, or not, but if anyone wants a copy and calls EP the item number is 3907. The price is around $160 if you are not a subscriber to the Signed Modern Classic series (I think it's $150 for subscribers or less). I don't really have any more information about the title as the sales person I spoke to when I placed my ordered didn't know much about the title, or any release info, or if they are going to even announce that it exists outside of the subscription series.

*** Note: As of 5/19/2023 - Previously on 5/10 I stated they were sold out. However, now EP has updated their website and they are making the book publicly available to all. Not sure why they said they were sold out when my buddy called, but if anyone wants a copy you can go to their Facebook, or website and order a copy:

toukokuu 13, 10:57 am

Hopefully they reserved enought for the subscribers of that series to receive theirs. Would be a shame if they did not.

toukokuu 18, 6:20 pm

I hope EP publishes "Norse Myths". They seem to be printing everything else.

toukokuu 19, 6:25 am

>82 Eastonorfolio: I'm hoping the same.

toukokuu 23, 12:10 pm

"Trigger Warning" is now available on the EP website in case anyone is interested.
