Wow! I guess it depends on condition, but that sounds like a phenomenal price.

Hi, I am new to this forum, I've also collected the "red leather" series. I have 34 of the books. The only book I've seen I don't have and I've only seen it listed twice, both by different sellers selling their entire collections, never seen it for sale alone, is "Black House" in the red leather. Can anyone confirm whether there ever was a red leather "Black House" made and if they've ever seen it? If there was one, the scarcity of any for sale might make that one of the rarest if not the rarest of the red leather books. I've also never seen one for "The Talisman", I don't believe there was ever one made for that title.

Black House is part of the "Red Leather Series" but The Talisman is not. There are a total of 37 books in this series, see e_taylors post on the first page for a complete list.

If you are looking to complete your set let me know which ones you are missing, I do have a few for sale, unfortunately Black House is not one of them.

Thanks for the info SkippyD, in addition to Black House, I am also missing On Writing and the edited edition of The Stand, do you have either of those for sale?

Just found a complete set, in new, mint condition. Some have never been opened, they still "crack" when opening the cover. Paid $375 cash. Beautiful set, feel extremely lucky!

These should answer any questions on the Red Leather Stephen King Book Club Editions.
