    Thanks. There are some easy ones but one difficult one to get and I am not even going to try for a non-lib Night Shift. I think that would be impossible to find and nearly impossible to validate.

    Yeah. The Double Day stuff is tough. What are you looking for other than Night Shift?

    I have all of them in various degrees of quality. To really finish up, I need a 2nd state Salems'. I have a Carrie that's not perfect but oh well It's signed but not dated but it has other issues. My Shining is pretty good. My Stand is pretty good. And then my inscribed lib NS. And the Salem's that I have is a 3rd state so I want a second. So I do have all of them. Just maybe not in the most desirable condition.

    We shall see. I just wish that I could get that second and I had a definitive price on my inscribed NS. I think in the "value of my collection section" there is a consensus for my Carrie. Lower than I had hoped but oh well.

    I am proud to own that. Don't get me wrong. Even with the "flaws", it's still one of the best books I have overall. I know that some people may not have any of the Double Day stuff. I am always hard on myself because of mistakes and missed chances in the past. That's all.

    Yeah, that Carrie is a very nice copy. Not flawless, to be sure, but as a signed trade edition of a 45-year-old book? Yep, that's a keeper.

    Congrats, Mike. I'd love to see more pics of your recent acquisitions.

    RF thinks it's a later sig like in the 80's. I will get the pics up as soon as I can. Nothing fancy since they are not fancy books. But I will
    get something up.

    Hi Mike,
    I am new to this chat room and am having trouble posting my input. I am looking at a first edition, first printing, possibly first state of Salem's Lot. The dust jacket has the $8.95 price in the upper right corner on the front flap of the dust jacket but refers to Father Callahan instead of Father Cody. The book is definitely first edition with the code Q37 on page 493 and is signed by Stephen King four years after initial publication. It has first edition on the copyright page of the book. My question: is this a first, second, or third state of the dust jacket or is this a publisher's print anomaly? Any help with this matter would be appreciated.

    Hello bmerritts and welcome.

    I will jump in here for Mike and answer your question. You have a first edition Salem's in a later printing jacket. We have a section here at thedarktower.org called King Trade First Editions (the link is located at the top of the main page) but here is the Salem's link to help with the answer:

    http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/...Lot+-+Trade+HC

    We also have a section called "Calvins Corner" with many collecting threads and people visiting with all the same King collecting interest. Calvins section found here:

    What you are after is HARD to get. One for sale now on line and is in the tens of thousands... only about 7 out there.

    All I want is a 2nd state Salems' Lot with the Father Cody error and the 7.95 price and that seems almost impossible to get. Any one who has a first state with Father Cody and 8.95 is very lucky. I don't even know if there is a true F/F with 8.95 and Father Callahan. I am almost at the point of giving up on these harder ones and more expensive ones. S\L and first ed included.
