Hello All -

(I'm putting this here because the Rares forum doesn't get much traffic)

By now, you've probably heard of the [Limited Edition] books that spawn rarely as part of a quest reward. What you may not know about are...

[Collector's Edition]
and
[First Edition]

I acquired this item and didn't even realize what I had until I almost dumped it. Given the number of times I've done these quests, I'd say these have about a 1-3% chance of spawning. Plus, I assume there is a [First Edition] for every gargish book title out there...and multiple colors...

Enjoy the pics.

I wonder wether you can see this also in the classic aka 2d client? I see just the title of the book. But maybe havent gotten any of these extra versions yet.

You can see them in classic. I'm guessing you just haven't gotten one yet...

I wonder whether there are also different bags. I mean the ones in which you get the rewards (gems, book). I got one called "Meager Museum bag" and "Dusty Museum Bag".

yes, there are different bags, but for what I am observing those just indicate the "level" of reward in your examples meager will just have regular jewels in them plus residue and a book, where dusty one has maybe a gem or 2 (dark sapphire, blue diamond etc) and maybe essence instead of residue.

Axem the currator gives three quests. He is located in the "statue"-museum in the Royal City. West of the soulforge and the palast.
One for giving in 5 "Remnants of an ancient scroll".
Another one for giving in 10 "Ancient pottery fragments".
And the last one for 1 "Untranslated ancient tome".
As reward... surprise ;).

The remnants of the ancient scroll and tome i get from Navery while the ancient pottery fragments I get from stone sliths. Hope this helps.

Pottery frags come from just about any monster in the new lands...unless you're actively trying to collect them. In that case, you can expect to get zero. Ever.

just use that lucky statue shaped like the uo logo on a globe, when I use it on my pally he has about 900 luck, I find pootery fragments on many of the creatures that I kill, but when I have zero luck, the return rate drops drasticly, though the rewards for the pottery quest are not great, you can do it over and over and it helps when trying to build up magical residue for imbue training.

Sources I've found:
Axem the curator quests (as already mentioned). The books are the easiest to find, Navery Nighteyes drops a ton of those books.

Percolem the Hunter quests (in the camp just east of the Museum).
I don't remember the names of his low level quests, but in the quests, you kill boura or raptors or sliths and get a few imbuing ingredients (20 to be precise) as well as one of the books.

The books are the same books as found in Ultima 6, so the complete list should be:
BALDWIN'S BIG BOOK OF BAKING
HUBERT'S HAIR RAISING ADVENTURE
LOGBOOK OF THE EMPIRE
YE LOST ART OF BALLOONING
A TREATISE ON THE LORE OF GARGOYLES
TANGLED TALES
KNIGHTS OF LEGEND, VOLUME I
THE FIRST AGE OF DARKNESS
THE SECOND AGE OF DARKNESS
THE THIRD AGE OF DARKNESS
THE QUEST OF THE AVATAR
WARRIORS OF DESTINY
WINDWALKER
THE CAVERNS OF FREITAG
SNILWIT'S BIG BOOK OF BOARDGAME STRATEGY
OF DREAMS AND VISIONS
CROSSBOW MARKSMANSHIP BY IOLO FITZOWEN
DILZAL'S ALMANAC OF GOOD ADVICE
PLANT LORE
THE WIZARD OF OZ
ALICE IN WONDERLAND
THE LOST BOOK OF MANTRAS
KODEKS RIT (aka The Book of Ritual)
KODEKS DESTERMUR (aka The Book of The Underworld)
KODEKS BENMONTAS (aka The Book of Administration)
KODEKS BENOMMANI (aka The Book of Prosperity)
KODEKS XEN (aka The Book of Family)
KODEKS KIR (aka The Book of Circles)
PLANS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A HOT AIR BALLOON
THE BOOK OF SPIRITUALITY
THE CODEX OF INFINITE WISDOM

All books come in various colors, and the rare books are (in order of rarity from "common" to rare):
Collectors Edition (Always white)
Limited Edition (Always orange)
First Edition (Always dark blue)
And some titles are more rare than others as well.

All of this information has been confirmed (except the list of books) and the data collection/feedback thread on stratics can be found here.

It will be my quest in my UO life to collect one of each edition of these books, as soon as I finish all of my other quests in my UO life. It could definitely be a while.
