## Philip K. Dick collection

We proudly offer one of the biggest collection of Philip K. Dick items available for sale today. If you don't know about this amazing author (then you're probably not on the right website), here is an old, short biography. This catalog is not a list of all the items in the collection, but I took a picture of all the items. If you have a question about one specific item, please contact me.

Please refer to our Terms & Conditions for details about making an offer for the whole collection.

Note that I keep the covers (wrappers) separated in a folder. So the books in the pictures below appear without wrappers, those being preserved under plastic wrappers. There are quite a few items that I have multiple copies of, this is always a good way to trade them for something new... Click on a picture of a given shelf to get a high resolution image.

I've tried to give a price estimate for each shelf. I tried as well, as a rule of thumb, to get a (low) estimate whenever possible.

Now let's go through this virtual visit of the various shelves of my collection.

Now let's go through this virtual visit of the various shelves of my collection.

## Shelf 1-1

The two Ultramarine items on the right are interesting. The yellow one (second book from right) is a review copy of "In Milton Lumky Territory". The "Broken Bubble" next to it is copy 17/250, signed by Tim Powers and Jim Blaylock.

## Approximate value of shelf 1-1

Hard one to evaluate. The Ultramarine editions are probably worth around $300 each. There may be one or two first editions in the lot. These could be worth also $200-$300 each. So let's say $600 fand $400 for the first editions. It leaves 26 items, probably worth around $30 each. That's $600+$400+$780, so around

**1780$**.## Shelf 1-2

French soft covers and some tapes in the middle: mainly records of interviews of or about PKD, including tapes distributed with the PKD Society (all the issues are part of this collection BTW). I never copied them into MP3, but I really should have done I guess. Some of this stuff should be pretty rare.

## Approximate value of shelf 1-2

The tapes are hard to evaluate. Some are part of the PKD Society issues. Some are just home-maid recordings of radio emissions. Let's count it as $20 a tape. There are then of them, so $200. There are 37 books, at $15 each, that's $370, for an estimated total of the shelf of

**$755**.## Shelf 1-3

A few paperbacks here with three highlights. Two items are inscribed to Joan Simpson, whom Phil met in 1977. "Martian Time-Slip" is signed by Phil.

## Approximate value of shelf 1-3

The 3 signed books are probably worth around $300 each, that's $900. There are a few first paperback editions as well on this shelf. Let's set an average at $15 each, first edition or not.. That's a 43 total items, excluding the signed items. The approximate total of the shelf is then around

**$1545**.## Shelf 1-4

On the left of this shelf, a few PKD books in Romanian and on the far right, a video tape of Phil's conference in Metz (France) in 1977. August Derleth's collection of short stories is inscribed by Phil to Joan.

## Approximate value of shelf 1-4

$300 for the inscribed book. It's very hard to evaluate the value of a book in a foreign language, like romanian. I'd suggest a $15 each. There are 47 items excluding "Time to come". So the estimated total for that shelf is

**$1005**.## Shelf 2-1

Some very interesting things here... Note "en passant" that I've got also some short stories colletions that contains a story by Phil Dick, like "the Dark Descent" on this shelf. I've added "Dr Adder" by KW Jeter, because not only I like the person very much (not Dr Adder, but KW ;) but the name of our bookstore was directly inspired by this novel. Not mentionning the role of KW in Phil's life... That's why I think this item has a place of choice in my collection.

## Approximate value of shelf 2-1

The items on this shelf trade paperbacks or hard covers and are relatively rare. I would put an average price tag for these of $25 and there are 39 books, assuming a estimated value of the shelf at

**$975**.## Shelf 2-2

Some french editions on this shelf, on the right, next to the UK paperback editions are about 12 copies of a script by Brian W. Aldiss called "Kindred Blood in Kensington Gore", a copy of which is signed by Brian Aldiss. This is a play I saw at the PKD Celebration in 1991 in Epping Forest, near London, and I believe Brian did it again in France at the Futuroscope in Poitiers a couple years later. It was funny, because it wasn't planned but Brian, as I remember, decided to perform it the evening before. It's an imaginery conversion between Phil Dick and his wives ;)

On the far right, are Gregg Rickman's books. I met Gregg in 1991 and was fortunate to have a copy of "To the High Castle" inscribed to me.

## Approximate value of shelf 2-2

The rarities here are Gregg Rickman's books, but and I like the Brian Aldiss signed copy. For these five items, I'll guess a $60 each, for a $300 total. There are 43 other items which would easily go for $15 a piece for a grand total of

**$945**.## Shelf 2-3

The shelf has the collected short stories by Gollancz. The volume one was first printed with a typo on the cover, "Beyond lies the Wubb" instead of "Wub". Both items are on the shelf. The ones that have a dust wrapper are duplicates. The wrappers of the others are safely stored in a folder.

## Approximate value of shelf 2-3

Most of the items on this shelf are UK hard covers, relatively hard to find, most of them being 1st UK editions. Considering this, I'd suggest an average book value of $40. There are 30 hard covers for a total of $1'200 and 4 paperbacks for $60, thus adding up to a

**$1'260**estimated shelf price.## Shelf 2-4

A few of the Gregg Press are first editions, left on this shelf.

## Approximate value of shelf 2-4

The 5 Gregg Press books reach around $100 each, the other items are paperbacks, probably around $20 each. There are 41 books, so $820, for a shelf estimated total of

**$1320**.## Shelf 3-1

Books in several languages here, including japanese, finnish, russian, dutch, italian, spanish, german and swedish.

## Approximate value of shelf 3-1

The value of a book in foreign language is hard to estimate. As an average for the whole shelf, I think $20 is fair. There are 38 books for a shelf total of $

**760**.## Shelf 3-2

Again some foreign languages here: german, finnish, spanish, tchec, bulgarian, italian, polish, finnish and french.

## Approximate value of shelf 3-2

Same remark as for the previous shelf, 44 items at $20 each gives a shelf estimation of

**$880**.## Shelf 3-3

A beautiful shelf, this one. From left to right: The Easton Press leather bound "High Castle" whose cover has been reproduced down below on the left. The Screenplay of Ubik afterwards and a few pre-Ceaucescu romanian SciFi magazines with a PKD short story in them. After a few books in french, the PKD bibliography in the Meckler edition. After a few books, you'll find the book by Uwe Anton, prefaced by Paul Williams; in its limited edition, here number 24, this book is signed by both Anton and Williams (see below).

Then follow the three copies of the Levack bibliography in the Underwood-Miller edition, paperback, hard cover (yellow) and the red clothbound, signed by Dick, Levack and Godersky (see below). After the two Blade Runners (2 and 3) by KW Jeter, the copy of the "Divine Invasions" was inscribed to me by Larry Sutin (see below, on the right).

On the far right, you will find the Uncorrected Proofs of the five volumes by Underwood-Miller of the Collected Stories.

On the far right, you will find the Uncorrected Proofs of the five volumes by Underwood-Miller of the Collected Stories.

## Approximate value of shelf 3-3

The Easton Press "High Castle", the Levack Meckler edition, the signed numbered edition of "Welcome to Reality", the two unsigned copies of the Levack UM bilbiography and the "Divine Invasions" would go for $100 each for a total of $600. The signed limited Levack UM edition goes easily for $1000. The UM Uncorrected proofs of the Collected Stories are worth $1000 as a full set. That leaves 25 books which I would put an average value of $20 each for a total of $500. The shelf estimation is thus

**$3100**.## Shelf 3-4

Ace paperbacks here from the 50s and the 60s... Three of them are copied below, two are signed by Phil Dick, one is inscribed "To Ray" (probably Ray Nelson). The books on the right are in portuguese.

## Approximate value of shelf 3-4

There are 11 portuguese paperbacks plus the Tod Machover CD, evaluated at $15 each, for a $165 total. There are 38 unsigned Ace paperbacks, estimated at $25 each for a total of $950. If I count $300 per signed/inscribed book, this values the shelf at an estimated

**$2015**.## Shelf 3-5

Mainly books in french on this shelf. Some portuguese editions stacked on top and magazines in English on the right. To be noted on the right, a couple of paperback copies of Richard Lupoff's "The Digital Wristwatch of Philip K. Dick" and the hardcover (limited to 50 copies) edition, signed by Lupoff, Philip José Farmer who wrote the foreword and artwork artist George Barr.

## Approximate value of shelf 3-5

I'd say the Lupoff limited hardcover and signed edition is worth around $200. There are 56 other items on this shelf, for an average value of $20 each for a shelf total of an estimated

**$1320**.## Shelf 3-6

A few signed copies of Paul Williams' book, Arbor House hardcovers, a few paperbacks lie on this shelf. PKD's essai Cosmogony and Cosmology which was boxed along with Valis.

## Approximate value of shelf 3-6

The boxed Valis edition is rare and probably would go for $200. Otherwise there are 41 items on this shelf probably worth around $20 each for a total shelf value of

**$1020**.## Shelf 4-1

A title in German and another one in Swedish, among a bunch of books in french. A few items in English too ;)

At the far right, "Nation of Lawyers" which was inscribed to me by Paul Williams whom I visited in Glen Ellen before his bike accident. Paul was one of the greated rock music journalist and a good friend of Phil Dick. Sadly he left us a couple years ago.

**$1230**.## Shelf 4-2

Larry Sutin's "In Pursuit of Valis" is here, in paperback, hard cover and boxed, numbered and signed by Larry. I met him once back in 1991 at the PKD Celebration and he was kind enough to give me the number 4 of the boxed edition ;)

Then on this beautiful shelf you can also find the boxed edition of the Collected Stories by Underwood-Miller. The second volume, "Second Variety" is signed by Norman Spinrad, whom I met several times at conventions in France.

On this shelf are also the hard cover and boxed edition of the Selected Letters by Underwood-Miller. Each one of the boxed edition is numbered to 250 copies and signed by a contributor (scans are below).

For some unknown reason, probably related to the size of the cover (don't laugh, storage is always an issue) I added on this shelf KW Jeter's "Blade Runner 2", inscribed to my first wife, my son Elliot and myself.
