  1. Sorry but I don't remember the number that was so long ago and I was depressed when I didn't win it. :)
  2. LoL, for sure. :) But remember the ace in the hole is the Lettered Legends . . . We don't really have any value on this. Is it work 4k? 5k? Who knows? I guess the problem with this type of thing is the potential market is so small and specialized it's really hard to sell it at all but at the same time all it takes is that one Jordan bibliophile with money. :) Thanks and let's see what happens, I'll update if/when I move this. I'm in no hurry so I do have the benefit of patience. As for your collection, it looks gorgeous. I don't think it is devalued at all actually. Remember that the publisher did the exact same thing to create the ultra small copies for Jordan. They took existing 1st printings and had them rebound. Of course, since it was the publisher, they were able to put in a limitation page and Jordan signed it. THOSE are super, super, super rare. I've only seen the one, Eye of the World and bid over 1000 on it and STILL lost. DOH!! :)
  3. Here's the link to my auction if you want to see pictures and what's included. :) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wheel-of-Time-Collection-Robert-Jordan-Legends-Leatherbound-Lettered-SIGNED-/191541084019?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c98bcff73
  4. I remember doing an Ebay completed item search a few years ago and came upon an ended auction for a numbered Legends that went for close to 2 grand. Hope that helps
  5. Hi Chris, LOVE YOUR COLLECTION! I'm the guy who listed mine on Ebay and I have to agree yours is AT LEAST the equal to mine. It is always a pleasure to see other collections and yours is one of the best I've ever seen. If you don't mind my asking how did you get the first three in green Leatherbound with slipcases? I had been told by Brandon Sanderson that the first 3 were never released to the general public. I heard rumors that a few of the 1st edition, 1st printings were specially commissioned for Jordan's personal collection. I saw a signed leatherbound version of Eye of the World about 3 to 4 years ago on Ebay but lost out on it. The lettered Legends is really the highlight of my collection. Aside from Jordan's signature it also has SO MANY other great fantasy authors. Stephen King especially is not easy to get as he doesn't often sign and of course other authors on that page are not as active. Some like the great Sir Terry Pratchett has sadly passed. :( To be honest, I'm not sure how much this is worth since collections like these come up very very infrequently. Like I said, I've never seen a lettered Legends in my life anywhere other than my own. Numbered ones have gone on ebay for around 1500 to 2000 if I recall correctly. I put up the price and will wait for best offers to see what the market is like. I love my collection but have enjoyed it for close to 9 years and I'm not really a book collector. Would prefer these go to a true bibliophile who can put them in a temperature and humidity controlled vault with the rest. But thanks so much for sharing your collection, it's breathtaking. :) I would love, love, love to have those first 3 books. LoL. Dennis
  6. Nice one but the ideal situation is a NON-PERSONALIZED signature. The fact that it is to Becky significantly decreases its value.
  7. You always trust the limitation page. 125 total it is.
  8. I wouldn't say that. If your full set are ALL FIRST EDITION FIRST PRINTINGS (from Eye of the World to A Memory of LIght) and signed by both Robert Jordan and Harriet then that is a VERY impressive set indeed. I don't think it's as valuable as the leatherbound collection mainly because of the limitations and the fact that there is a lettered Legends in there but overall, I would consider your set to be a grail level collectible. A signed 1st printing of Eye of the World is a 1000 dollar item easily in my opinion.
  9. Thanks. It goes without saying but these books aren't for reading. None of them have even been opened except to check the limitation page and as you can see with the last 3 in the sequence by Brandon Sanderson, they are all still in the original shrinkwrap.
  10. Well they each retailed for 250 to 300 dollars apiece. So that starts it off at 4000 dollars and change. Some of course I spent much more on and it's worth now as a complete set is several times the initial price. Also a Legends lettered with all those signatures would be astronomical in and of itself.
  11. I'm guessing I'm one of the few people outside Harriet and Tom Doherty who has one of these. With A Memory of Light, it's about as complete as it ever will be. They never did the first 3 for mass consumption for whatever reason. I hope Tom Doherty eventually finishes it off but without Jordan's REAL signature (not just a photocopy) it'll never be the same of course. Enjoy, comments to follow New Spring, Legends, Lord of Chaos, Path of Daggers, and Winter's Heart are actually all LETTERED editions. The most valuable of all of them is probably my Lettered Legends since there is only 50 in existence and 11 went to the authors who contributed to it. It has GRRM, RJ, Anne McCaffrey, Silverberg, Orson Scott Card, Goodkind, Stephen King, Terry Pratchett sigs etc on limitation page. Not sure how much it's worth but I've never seen one for sale under any circumstances and in any venue. The first three books sadly aren't first edition first printings but they are all handsigned by Robert Jordan. The Big White Book is a first printing signed by Jordan . . . Thanks for looking. I think it's pretty rare to see something like this. In all the Internet, I've only found one pic remotely resembling this and that was on Encyclopaedia WoT's book collecting section which only shows the leatherbound series up to Crossroads.
  12. It is weird that we never actually see a reunion between Moiraine and Siuane. Then again, events are moving so fast that we don't really have a chance to see her reunite with everyone. Her reunion with Lan for instance takes place off screen and is only mentioned in passing by Rand. If you stop to think about it, what is there really to write? The emotions of shock, gladness, and a bit of awkwardness would be pretty identical you'd think for all involved. And do we really need to see her explain about the Aelfinn and Eelfinn again and again type of thing? I do think a paragraph or two between Siuane and Moiraine would have been nice since the two of them started all of this in a way back in New Spring and Siuane bites it in the end but overall I was okay with skipping most of them.
  13. Yes, they counteract the Last Hunt. Hmmm. I believe the WOLVES are part of the Last Hunt. They counteract the Dark Hounds which form the WILD Hunt. At least that's what I remember.
  14. As a point of clarification, Annoura doesn't die. She is burned out because she channels to make a Gateway to rescue Galad for Berelain. While many Aes Sedai do lose the will to live after being burned out or even stilled, this is far from a guarantee. Setaelle Anan, Siuan, Leane, and others come immediately to mind. If a woman can replace the One Power with something equally she loves almost equally (whether husband, cause, etc) then she will live. The same hope extends to Annoura and we are of course not told how that will play out. As well, we are never told the fate of Agelmar. Last we see him, Lan prevents him from committing suicide. While he can't command, he's capable of holding a sword and like Bashere and Bryne can still fight like a regular soldier. His survival or death is not addressed so we are free to speculate there as well. Setaelle Anan was alive last we saw here but she could very well be dead after Faile departs on Bela to go after the Horn. Many minor characters' ultimate fates are not spelled out and unless we see a death "on-screen" so to speak there's every chance that they are still alive.
  15. Really nice to hear about Demandred. Did Taim receive some development as well? Can we imply from this book how the relations between the Ashaman and Aes Sedai are going to look like in the future? Was any official policy adopted with respect to Ashaman and Aes Sedai bonding each other? The possibility of a mass orgy is significant in my opinion.
