Collect ?

The dutch books of Philip K Dick are very easy to collect. In total there are 25 stories published in Dutch. To find all versions in Dutch (including short stories) it will take you a little more effort, but it’s certainly not impossible. Internationally there are many collectors of first editions and / or hardcovers. Or they try to collect all the different editions of a particular title or the original magazines where stories were first published. Furthermore, all PKD editions of one particular publisher also quite popular ... or all versions of a single title.
If you want to collect first editions in perfect condition or autographed copies that can be a very costly affair. Still, you can buy a lot of expensive ones as library version.
I myself try to gather international versions of UBIK (soon I'm going to post information online).
