If you have a broken set of the ASOIAF limited edition books you can post a request here to see if another member owns and is willing to sell you the missing book(s).

Tread carefully though. This particular ever expanding set of books may well go down in publishing history as the most misbegotten, mismanaged and misnamed "limited" edition ever created.

If you are looking for a copy of book 1 or book 2 please state whether you want the Meisha Merlin or the Subterranean Press version. If that statement leaves you confused then I'd advise you to close the thread immediately, only madness and pain await you within.

Probably just a shot in the dark, but I'm missing AGOT #259. Will however consider buying any AGOT.

I'm missing aGoT #123. I have been looking for it for a long time, so I don't really think I'll get a hold of it, but it's worth a shot. :P

I've got #246 for COK and SOS. I'm not sure if I could afford it, but I would love to have the same number for AGoT.

I have lettered XX AGOT, and Z for the other two. Would trade XX for Z, or vice-versa.

I purchased the first from the owner and he didn't transfer his rights, and I got the next two from Subpress. (That's the short version). Just saw #208 COK on Abebooks for $450, if anyone is looking for it.

Check the announcement at the top of this forum regarding books for sale -- George has a number of the numbered copies of AGoT for sale, in the 400-area.

Looking for AGoT #127. I could go buy an AGoT but if it's not the matching number with the rest of my series it would really bother me. If anyone has it I would be so stoked. Probably grasping at straws like everyone else here.

Does anyone know who bought the ACoK #208 from abebooks? I currently have ACoK #404, ASoS #208 and AFFC #208 on order, so if anyone knows who has AGoT and a CoK #208 let me know, I would be willing to trade it for #404 that I have.

I said I wouldn't sell my signed silver cover AGOT when I bought it, but the way these prices keep rising, I may do so. :) I'd be able to buy a lot of other books (and a reprint copy of AGOT) for the price...

I think I'm going to put my copy 134 up for sale. I'm kicking myself for not getting the rest of the books, but at the same time I can't really argue with the price I'd be getting for it.

#161 just sold for $1425 on ebay. With the option to get ACoK too. No indication about the rest of the series. Is that a new record?

Camelotbooks has a complete numbered set (1-4) for sale, but I don't know the number.

Seems like a bit of activity recently...
