Considering the titles you're chasing are long out of print in HC, your best chance would be to search used bookstores or eBay.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Unfortunantly I can be no help either. There might be stuff on Amazon, I would suggest finding out the ISBNs and searching Amazon for them used or try ebay.

Although you have the real first edition of Daughter of the Empire, it is smaller than a regular hardcover. (The same size as the book club edition)

The next US first edition released was Servant of the Empire with THIS cover. But it is regular size so will not match your Daughter of the Empire.

Next of course would be Mistress of the Empire.  Which again is a regular size hardcover and will not match yours.

Thanks for your reply, that was exactly the problem the firs book I have dont match the other two books. I think the book I have (the cover that is) is an exeption because the other books of feist have covers following each other up. thanks anyway.

I think I go look for some covers who match on ebay, that probably will be UK editions.

Wurts did that cover art, I believe. I looked under her at Crydee.com and found that there are no matches for the later two books.

If you are after books that match in their physical size - try locating Servant and Mistress in US Book Club format - the sizes are identical to the book you have.

If it's the art work you want to match, you might be out of luck.  This is the only book of Rays' with Jannys' art work on the cover.  Her husband Don Maitz did the US covers for Servant and Mistress.

Even in the UK/Australian market, we got Geoff Taylor covers for Daughter and Mistress, but the same Servant cover as the US edition......

Note: I'm assuming you are after hardback books in my response.
