    Default The Collectible Justin Cronin

    I don't think there's a Justin Cronin Collecting thread yet, so I'll create one - I think there's sufficient interest in his work and his collectible books.

    I just came across a picture of the lettered edition of THE PASSAGE (I lifted the pic from Justin Cronin's Facebook page, he happens to be one of my connections - I haven't checked the publisher's page yet):



    Looks pretty nice!!

    I'm thinking someone here feels sorry for me and wants to sell me their lettered version for cover price when they get it.

    I don't think he needs his own thread. He published one book (that we care about.) I've seen decent Garton, Koontz, Rice etc collections on here that don't have their own thread.

    I'm not a Cronin collector at all, but there seem to be enough people that are interested in him to have his own thread. Also, there seem to be numerous variations of that one book to keep things interesting.

    The 2nd in the trilogy "The Twelve" arcs are starting to show up, and the public release will be October 2012.

    That gives us more to talk about.

    Good luck with that!

    I'm bidding on two Cronin ARCs on E-bay now. I'll probably lose them both but I'm keeping my 12 fingers crossed.

    Feel free to start threads for those or any other authors. Interest will determine how long any thread lives.

    15 sold on EBay so far with ending prices ranging from $15-$105.

    I need one myself but wonder what value would be in November after October release?

    Speaking as a proof collector, they seem fairly plentiful, so I'd tend to the lower of the range.

    I couldn't bring myself to pay $60 right now. I figured after the release it will go down some. I say $60 because that is the price I could have had one.

    It seems like people are actively looking for the 'misprint' edition, but do the errors really add to the value of the book? Genuine question!

    To me it falls in the same category as other misprints (e.g., text block bound upside down, missing or duplicate pages), I don't feel like it's a true separate and collectible state of the book. What's the consensus here?

    I paid about $90 for my FINE misprint edition, which is also signed (although I didn't card whether it was signed or not).

    The misprint edition is the true 1st printing, as they were recalled and corrected, if my information is correct. That makes it collectible to me.

    I paid $40 for my errored copy in fine condition, also signed. It also came with a signed flyer. This was all from our own Jerome.

    Wouldn't the copies with errors be considered the earlier state and, therefore, more desirable to collectors?

    I have my 3 copies with errors (1 unsigned, 2 signed) listed in my collecting software as "Early State". So yes, I agree with Bobs statement.

    Thanks everyone. I found one in a used bookstore and I'm considering selling it. If anyone is interested, message me. I'm out of town at the moment so I might not get right back to you.

    Isn't it possible that they were released at the same time? I find it very hard to believe they would print such a small ammount of books and release them to bookstores. This was destined to be a best-seller from the get-go, why would they print a small quantity? I believe they were released to the public at the same time and that they corrected the mistakes during the printing process.

    Edit: also, if the quantity wasn't small (and I'm wrong about it), shouldn't the next batch of books with errors corrected be considered (and marked) as second printing with a number line starting with 2? You can't have two first printings. Either the one with mistakes is the first one and they forgot to change the number line in the corrected version, or they were both released at the same time.

    The publisher wasn't aware of the error until readers started calling. They quickly made an announcement to bookstores to pull the error edition for replacement. For those of us that did call, we could send our error copy direct to publisher (I didn't of course) for replacement as well, and they gave us a link to a PDF of corrected chapter.

    Again, they didn't know this happened. I think the first print number with errors is large, but I also know a ton of them was sent back and destroyed.

    No, they didn't correct the number line. We have two edition in the market. One with error and number line 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 and one with corrections with number line
    10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1. So, this is why I call my error copies "Early State" first edition.

    Am I wrong?
