Selling (1 Viewer)

Hello - it's been a long time. I'm selling:

Burning in Water - First; signed in red ink; no 12

Hollywood - First; signed with dog & little man doodle; no 243

Last Night of the Earth - First; signed with little man doodle - and also, signed print tipped in front ("Buk '92); no 220

Barfly - First; signed; no 245

Bring Me Your Love - First; signed by Buk & Crumb; no 312

Any offers

Cheers

Evas

I'll also throw in signed New Years with little man drawing . . .
 
Cheers Chronic - yes, of course & some pics. I'll get on to that - I just want to test the water; no idea what, if anything is selling. I've got some beautiful books & hate to sell, but . . . any reasonable offer I'd consider. I'll throw it open . . . I'll get back once I've looked about. Big thanks.

Oh - & I'd like to sell the lot; books with value make me nervous, for one thing.
 
Also - what condition are they in? Do they have the acetate dust jackets? Postage?

I might be interested in signed Barfly but be warned they have been selling pretty low. Fine condition are worth no more than US$150.
 
Thanks PBBUK - all books are in fine condition; all with acetate dust jackets & kept in smoke-free, pet-free, child-free conditions. No sun, either. But I need to sell them as a lot - much as I'd like to sell individual books to genuine fans. Thank you.

You might be lucky, and find a buyer who'll take the lot (ie. a dealer), but I'd suggest that splitting them is the way to go if you want to sell them soon.

Evas,
You will find that if you sell them in a lot, you will either a) NOt sell any or b) you will sell them for half of what they are worth.

A lot of 15 books went on ebay the other day that had a copy of "At Terror Street" and about 10 other 1st paperbacks including some early ones. The hammer price? $305. Had the seller broken then up they could have sold them for over $500. Laziness cost them $200.

You'll probably get a better price by splitting them up.

And what New Years greetings do you have?
I certainly wouldn't 'throw them in'.
Especially the signed ones...
they are highly (and very addictively) collected by some,
or so I've heard ;)
 
Plus most people that would be interested in buying them as a lot would already have at least half of the books - and then they have to sell the doubles.

Good luck.
 
+4 or so on the "break them up individually." The market is way down, as evidenced by Bill's post. But I have all you are offering except for the Burning in Water..., and would only be interested in that. But again, the Market is way down. A very nice It Catches My Heart... sold a couple of days ago on ebay for $530. It would likely have gone for $700-$900 a year and a half ago.

PBA just sold one today for $900... just more evidence that eBay is a good arbiter of current value, but not the only one.

Missed it by $10. Damn snipers!:mad:

And that included 20% premium so fall of the hammer $750. PLUS that copy had nice drawing by Buk. That was one title I didn't think you would ever be able to get for under US$1,000 - especially with large drawing!
