    Thank you all for the superlatives on the Orange Plume Proof.
    It was no exaggeration when David described it before the auction. I should have some images shortly of the Viking, Sphere and Plume proofs as a trio. It is at this point appropriate to thank David for bringing this to the market place, there is very little it appears that cannot be purchased at Betts Books.
    As always many thanks to Simon who has posted these images and the same group in the relevant proof section.

    As the copies of Firestarter from Dragon Rebound head out to their respective locations, I will take this opportunity to say thank you to Paul Suntup who has just taken on a project to produce five unique copies of rebound first editions for me. The project, I am sure, is probably not the first time it has been done.
    First edition copies of Carrie, Salem's Lot, The Shining, Night Shift and The Stand will be rebound into extremely fine leather covers, each with their own matching leather tray case. The details of the stampings and gold pattern are with Paul, as is the quality of the product and materials to be employed.
    The difference with this set is that I have been able to use some of the 1980's signed bookplates that I purchased as a batch of sixteen many months ago. These will be set into each book in a recess on the verso of the front board.
    The complete design is totally with Paul and his ability to come up with something of the highest quality is without question.
    As the project progresses I will post a few updates here as I am sure Paul will do the same on his media sites.
    I feel very privileged that Paul has elected to produce this set for me, especially with the work load he has already undertaken with his next lettered edition.
    So a very heartfelt thank you to Paul.

    Thanks for the kudos Alec! You are too kind.

    A new acquisition for Alec. PS Publishing's Lettered 'Salem's Lot (Letter U).

    This looks to be yet another wonderful edition from PS. Pete and his team at PS Towers really put the effort into making a lettered edition a real collectible rather than just the standard book with a letter instead of a number. The high end materials, the artwork and the whole package is beautifully put together, and i think Alec has nicely shown the book off in his photo's with the bird - very macabre!



    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Congratulations, Alec. This looks like a beautiful edition of Salem's Lot, and I love the distressed look of the cover / traycase material... Fantastic (and thanks, Simon).

    Thank you Simon. I could not agree more with your observations on the production of the book and the fact that it is a rather fine collectible. No unnecessary frills and appendages, in fact the book holds up well on its own without the jacket. Beautifully crafted and the finish and detail is perfect. Congratulations to Peter and PS Publishing, a superb fourth addition to a remarkable set of books.
    Thank you all for the comments on this production. Spot on!

    I love how this Dust Jacket art (the face, close up) marries with the Thinner edition...

    Looking for a Salem's Lot, Red Roman Numeral.

    A long shot I know. Normally I do not post prices, however to establish an interest on such an item I would be looking at paying $17,500.00 +++

    Should the possibility arise please send me a PM, we could then elect to engage privately if acceptable.

    A very Happy New Year to you all.
