I’m in the process of acquiring a complete collection of Philip K. Dick’s first editions in hardback, including those books first published as paperback originals. Some of these are fairly hard to find, among them the UK White Lion edition of Counter Clock World. It came out in 1977, preceding the Gregg Press hardback by two years. I finally found an acceptable Ex-Library copy I could afford, thanks to a private seller who contacted me about after seeing it on my books wanted list.
Dick, Philip K. Counter Clock World. White Lion, 1977. First hardback edition, an Ex-Library copy with remnants of pocket removal on inside front cover, FFE excised, and small stamps on title and copyright pages, otherwise VG, with signatures slightly shaken, 1/4″ cloth wear-through on rear board edge at heel and general wear, in a VG dust jacket with extremely shallow chipping at head and heel, wrinkling to bottom edge of front flap, and haze rubbing to black back panel, but otherwise intact and not price-clipped. Currey, p. 156. Not in Levack, which is the only omission I’ve found in PKD.
Non Ex-Library copies tend to list around two grand.
That leaves three UK Dick hardback firsts I still need:
