Yep, that's it.  If you buy it, be sure to check and see that the map is also included.  And, IIRC, NobleKnight had copies as well last time I looked.

Can someone tell me what IIRC means?    :?


"But I have watched the dragons come, fire-eyed, across the world."

(big woolly) Mammoth Cthulhu Collection. 80 books or so. Probably only really of interest to UK buyers (or even only to those who live close enough to be able to pick up).  But good for those contemplating a new career in reselling...

On balance, yes, it is not a steal. but I think it is probably worth it. The higher ticket items are:

The Black Seal -- issues 2, 3,
Horror on the Orient Express (minus box & some bits)
Beyond the Mountains of Madness
The Golden Dawn
Walker in the Wastes
Cairo Guidebook
Cthulhu by Gaslight (1st ed. Boxed)

much of the rest will sell for £5-£10-£15 an item. It would be interesting to see what the MULA go for on ebay.co.uk They are not rare but buying them from Chaosium (if you are in the UK) is a real pain unless you go for their free shipping offer.

UK Ral Partha Bridge of Sorrows at an affordable price:  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=8745061116&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT

These tend to go for $60-120 US in general, although sometimes they slip under the radar here and there.

Large MERP lot with 14 hours left. Some of it looks a little worn.

Yeh I have that on my watch list, the first 100 are the only ones really to collect, but anyhting over 100 you can pick up for nothing... and the postage from the uk on this lot will be a killer

He seems very blasé about the quality of the collection too. I would be surprised that they are all (without a single exception) in such pristine condition. The early WDs in particular are pretty thin and crease and bend easily.

(not mine of course, which are, without exception, immaculate... :D :D )

(that's me being ironic above by the way, not boastful  :) ).

The first six issues are all reprints, but that was not answered visibly on the listing unlike the other questions.

Top right hand corner. There is a line that reads 'Second printing August....' or 'Third printing....'

If that line is not there, it's a first print.
