Topic: Pan Books collection - Rob007

Intro:

Hi everyone,

I've been collecting James Bond Pan paperback books since 1998 and now have over 200 in my collection.

Current total = 225 books (last updated 11/02/2017)

I thought it would be useful to list them all, and AJB007 seemed as good a place as any.

Hopefully other collectors will find this useful and some might even find it interesting.

If there are any other Pan collectors, post a comment below!

Thanks,
Rob

I have used the fantastic www.collecting-fleming.com as my point of reference, and can highly recommend it to collectors of any level.

Generally, I have only listed prices as they appear on the front cover, up to and including the Hawkey series. If an edition has more than one variation (as listed on CF), then I distinguish between them using a simple description preceded by "var. -".

---

Note to Alan.

I've finally got around to purging my collection of any duplicates, and while doing so, I compared all my copies to those listed on your site.

I have found several books (mainly small price variations) that weren't listed on your site, and have highlighted these in purple below.

If you would like any additional information or photos etc. feel free to get in touch.

Re: Pan Books collection - Rob007

Hi Rob,

Great list - thanks for posting.  Its also reassuring to know there are other people out there crazy enough to try and collect one of every edition!  You are part of an exclusive club!  Given the way the prices of the early 1st editions seem to be rocketing up its a good club to be in.

I think I have been collecting these longer than you and as such have all the above editions, but need to check whether my editions & their covers match up.  Certainly at the cross over between the different covers (painted / hawkey / still / model etc) there are mixed up editions.

These are the editions I am missing from my collection & will happily swap / pay ridiculously over the odds for....

Casino Royale 5th / 11th / 14th / 32nd
LALD 26th

There are also a few more I am keen to get better copies of

OHMSS 6th (still life)
YOLT 3rd (still life)
YOLT 1st or 2nd with the promotional wrap around dust jacket (looks like movie edition)

I will drop you a PM as I can help you out with a few gaps.

Regards
Alan

Yes you need to quote the Edition number as when a newer (e.g.-film tie-in ) cover was put on,
the story pages were previous old stock revived !  You could have a 1969 OHMSS film cover with 1965 story pages.
The website pointed out the OHMSS white covers have either green or blue lettering depending on edition number.
(I have the green but not the blue.)

Yes, the 1969 OHMSS film tie-in with TB film announcement is a good case in point of this.

Re: Pan Books collection - Rob007

I don't see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in your Miscellaneous section
the edition I have is a sort of odd trade paperback sized one with the cartoon cover
top left in this page: http://www.tikit.net/Chitty.htm
looks like there was a more conventional sized film tie in as well, I've never seen that one
book stores usually don't file these with the James Bond books, you have to look in the children's section
