    They appear very rarely, just as rare as the first five or six books in hardback, if not rarer. All the Gemmell ones I have seen seem to start around £20 and go upwards, but you may see the odd one appear that has a buy now of £100+.

    I haven't seen one for a long while prior to the SoT one I bought recently. The one I have seen the most is the Troy version, which sometimes comes in a bundle being sold as a trinity of Troy (Proof, Hardback, Slipcase) for £150+

    I haven't seen that recently though and now Slipcase versions go for £100?

    I have no idea when the first proof was available, but for reference, my oldest Proof is Legend of Deathwalker.

    I paid £30, and was lucky I think. I did have enough on it to cover it up to about £60 though, and watched it like a hawk until it ended.

    I found a couple of Proofs on Abebooks of the Troy series, you can get Troy and SoT and have enough to buy a pint with the change of £100...

    gemmell - proof david gemmell - AbeBooks

    Ignore the ludicrus price for QfLH - Yes I would love it, yes the price is way too high, and No, Bookplates signed by David Gemmell does not mean he ever saw the book and could have been applied after the man died.

    I have seen people trying to sell 'signed' editions, when all they have done is cut the signature from a paperback, not even a plate, and then border it and stick it in. In case you cant tell, I ****ing hate bookplates.

    As for Slipcased Troys' never seen them that low, but I will admit not to be actively looking for them - as mentioned, this forum (and chatting to Nick) revived my Gemmell collectors interest whcih had waned slightly, but only because I knew the last books I needed where all very expensive. I had a good run of catching up though in the last year thankfuly aided by a temporary position (that I am just about to complete a whole year of) which gave me the extra funds to be able to look into the first place.

    Again, Abebooks has them at the £125+ range:

    david gemmell - slipcase - AbeBooks


    lol, yeap!

    Fixed now.

    Added pics of the US edition paperbacks. Yep they look like they have been found in a skip - I think I got Legend (Against the Horde) in the most run down charity shop you EVER saw, and Waylander was in a box in the front of a house clearance shop, so is just as beat up as it looks, I cant remember where I found KBtG, either in a third location, or with another - hmm, it may have been AtH and Waylander in the house clearance, and KBtG in the charity shop. :confused: It was a long while ago.....:blush:

    Picked it up from the Post Office this morning, its massive! Not sure why I thought it would be small as it contains a full sized trade paperback - which is almost perfect (slight impression on the cover) by the way, and very pleased.

    Dispite being double packed in bubble wrap, the internal plastic casing is a bit broken with some loose pieces inside, but I will get the magic tape out.

    The booklet is indeed the instruction book and aludes to a Spectrum template that is missing from my copy as well.

    The book, the map, the booklet and case (apart from the inside) all are perfect - it looks unused.

    Very happy. :smashin:

    Just stumbled across this gemmell forum i have never seen before, might have a look at some threads later.

    Legend Readers • Index page

    I've been thinking about re-reading all the books and remembering some favourites, I really like the rigante series i can remember I was a bit disapointted when I knew about the time jump forward but I think I enjoy the second pair even more than the first. I can remember how sad part of the third book is even now.

    Has anyone got a image of the white paperback of legend by anychance, i cannot find one online and mines in storage, thanks.
