    Wednesday again.
    This next proof is a scarce modern day UK proof that I have never seen up for sale. I have regularly searched for it but have only found copies of the regular proof. The rarer proof only differs from the regular proof in that it has no 'embargo' statement on all the pages. I am trying to work out the numbering system on these. It is widely thought that there are 70 copies, which would be '70' in the number. Would the '10' be the proof number and the '2' that it is the 2nd state of the proof? This is the first time I've come across a numbering system like this. This is the first of many new UK proofs I have managed to obtain; some new, some quite old, but most very rare.

    Proof #157 - Stephen King - 11/22/63 - 2nd State UK Advance Uncorrected Proof with no embargo statement (with publisher's letter)

    For you MichaŽl. But I know you prefer the older proofs.

    My copy is numbered 53.2.70. I agree this variant is really scarce. A nice catch!

    Thanks John. Yes, it would appear the '10' and '53' are the proof number and the '2' seems at the moment fairly constant.

    Thank you MichaŽl. I have managed to pick up 3 UK proofs from the 80s, and 3 from the 90s that I was missing. Those would probably interest you more.

    Can't wait to see what you have in store, Jon. Since I stopped collecting proofs RPW has been my 'fix'.

    Only (at the moment) 20 weeks of RPW to go! 22 proofs but 4 belong to a set.

    Will do. Iíve now almost filled two bookcases with proofs. Some take up a lot of space - some are oversized in 3 volumes.

    You have been a man on a mission. Obviously, that is one I do not have. You have been beating the bushes and are finding some tough ones. Congratulations, Jon!

    Nice score! Iíve never seen a publisher letter yet, what a cool piece to go with the proof. Good luck figuring out the number system.

    Sorry I'm late to the party, but that Black House proof is fascinating. Seeing the early state of the text is so cool.
