Here goes for my first 11 (and I am only asking about the entries I'm not sure of):
1) I'm pretty sure I've read that catalogs for conventions/art shows are kosher, so I guess this one's good:
The 1955 Pittsburgh International Exhibition of Contemporary Painting
2) By the same criteria, I present the program from the 1984 Major League Baseball All-Star Game: (http://www.librarything.com/work/5303817/book/297546640). Are we good?
3) Three different editions of Alchemy Magazine. This was a literary anthology produced by the Liberal Arts Department of San Francisco State University when I was a grad student there in the late 80s. I don't know how "generally available" these would be considered, as they might have been sold briefly in some San Francisco bookstores on a consignment basis when they were first published, and of course in the campus bookstore, but that's it. I looked and it seems that each of these is listed by one other LT member, but separately from mine (I included the editor as "author." The other lister did not.) So these would therefore fall under the "in order to be considered for this group the book(media) must be cataloged by at least two people on Library Thing" proviso. Unless they are considered "generally available," in which case that second listing would, I guess, disqualify them. These were all entered manually by me. Thoughts?
Thanks for any and all help. This is a fun project!
From the Group rules:
22. Moo, Blurb, Lulu and other vanity presses...Well if you create a wacko book(media) just to brag, or perhaps gloat, on this group more power to you. So for books(media) published by a vanity or self publishing presses and books(media) not general available through mainstream distributions channels, in order to be considered for this group the book(media) must be cataloged by at least two people on Library Thing.
My question is whether an anthology published by a university department, mostly for faculty/students of that university, counts under this rule.
Of course combination can also be an issue.
As I've posted before, there are some very scarce books where I have multiple variant copies but no one else has one cataloged.
In the meantime, here's my list, in case anyone wants a look:
Well I found 338 unique to me books AND, AND films. I find it much more difficult to combine obscure Films than books.
I'm not even sure if films should be included in this ULTB group. I will though eventually get rid of that Tag. Why do I need it when I can
just sort by members?
Perhaps I am strange but I prefer to has as few ULTB as possible :-)
By me William Shakspeare
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spelling_of_Shakespeare%27s_name (mentions this very volume)
Maybe it was cheaper to produce the book that way.
Oooh! If we had to pay per letter....ouch.
"Edward Oxford", according to customary usage for peers.
