We actually have a 'ultb' reviewed this quarter - congratulations to member breeks for owning the only copy of the Shetland Dialect book on LibraryThing! There is also a work - In London During the Great War - which is completely absent from the 100 million books on LT. There is a handful of the author's other works, mostly on Irish themes.

Apart from the obvious outlier, Slaughterhouse Five, the rest of the selection is only modestly represented on the site; even J G Farrell's magnificent, award winning novel, Troubles, comes in at less than 1000 copies.
