Wade Burgess, #1 fan and collector of Wilbur Smith first edi

Postby wadeburgess » Tue Jan 24, 2006 1:38 pm

I have been reading and collecting Wilbur Smith books for around 9 years now. I have not found a fan who has a Wilbur Smith book collection to match mine. If you have a collection, please contact me. I'd be happy to meet other fellow collectors! I prefer the Sean Courtney trilogy. Thanks.
Please contact me if you collect Wilbur Smith first editions.

Hi Wade,

I think tedd may have a collection to rival yours:

I have 27, all hardback 1st editions in dustjackets and all signed - some flatsigned and some signed on labels.

I own most WS books, probably about 27 too, but mainly the modern paper backs.

Hope you have fun here,

Hi Wade,

I own all of his books but only from Rage onwards are they original (i.e 1st edition) hardbacks. I am very impressed with Tedd's collection though.

Anyway, welcome to the forum. :)

EDIT - I have just read about your own collection....Oh my word!! I am very impressed to say the least!

Hiya Wade!!

I'm super jealous of your library! I've been slowly collecting WS's works, and I have some 1st edition finds :)

Hey Wade!

Welcome to the forum! By the way if you've got extra copies I don't mind if you donate them to my own collection :D
