    Will the value of a Rage first edition be lower if printed in Canada on the CP page? Opinions?

    Yes, because it's not the US 1st edition, it's technically the Canadian edition. It would be lower in the same way that any King Canadian 1st is lower relative to a US or UK 1st.

    For Rage, I'd say the value would be at least 50% less than the US book.

    I didn't know the Canadian version existed until this auction. Mine is US (checked last night).

    If an auction appeared with a very nice copy of Rage for $250 (but didn't show the copyright page) I wouldn't have hesitated to grab it. Why? Until now, all Rage editions I've seen have been USA first (it never went into 2nd print).

    This is very interesting. I wonder how many Canadian first editions are in print?

    Normally print runs in Canada are much smaller - our population is 10 percent of the USA's - so i expect the Canadian run is likely around the same. So certainly more scarce, but one case where that does not translate into enhanced collectability.

    So (just for conversation), what is everyone's opinion on the value of this Canada first print:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/282649014715?rmvSB=true

    $200?

    $200. No more. If FINE, perhaps $275.

    I agree!

    This is a great conversation of learning for our new members looking for a Rage. Beware and ask questions before buying. Make sure it's the US release (not unless you're looking specifically for the Canada first).

    But he's a Barnes & Noble Gold Club member. They don't lie.

    I think it's actually a satire piece. From a certain perspective it can be seen as high comedy.

    For instance, the fact that he didn't use a new "Signed Copy" sticker but is obviously using one pulled off of another book. Clever! The fact that his "PROOF" of signing is a photo of the Bookstore One signing of End of Watch while claiming that the signing was by Barnes & Noble for the recent IT paperback release. Brilliant!

    I find this to be the best line..."Buy with confidence"

    This is better than Monty Python!

    I left a wonderful report saying that the listing was nothing but contradictory information full of lies. there was never a signing event for IT and the picture of the signing shows a hardcover book not a softcover. Maybe eBay finally pulled one.
