    Great proofs Jon. Only recently saw the Insomnia proof on eBay for the first time. Intrigued by this new one you have coming.

    It's one of the sampler proofs like Blaze, but one I hadn't heard of before, from 2003 I think. That gives it away as there was only one book in 2003!

    Thanks Antoni. It's only recently that I have seen them for sale as well.

    Rare Proof Wednesday Part 17

    Proof #112 - Stephen King - The Dark Tower V : Wolves Of The Calla - UK 'The Return Of The King' Advance Uncorrected Sampler Proof

    I have managed to acquire three different UK Sampler Proofs recently but I was not aware of this one before it came up for sale. This 32-page stapled glossy covered sampler seems to be extremely scarce. Does anyone else have one of these or know about them?
    It has an introduction and contains the Prologue of the story. There is also information on the UK DT I-IV PB releases and a presentation boxset, the basic storylines of DT I-VI, information on the Concordance Volume One and release information on DT V.





    Proof #113 - Stephen King - Needful Things - US Advance Uncorrected Proof

    You mean there are 2 different samplers?

    Thanks Rogier. This is the only DT V sampler I know of. The other samplers I have are different titles. I have corrected my post above.

    I've seen (and owned) a couple of the DTV samplers before. It's quite scarce but not in the same league as the UK Blaze and Under the Dome samplers. If I'm not mistaken this is number 3 under entry B188 in Brooks' Bibliography.

    A very nice addition!

    Thanks Michael. I hadn't heard of this one before. I really need to get myself a Brooks' Bibliography.

    Congratulations Jon! I never knew about that sampler. Great to be able to see a picture of it. MichaŽl, I've also never seen or heard of an UTD sampler. It isn't listed on Jon's proofs list either. You have a picture of one?

    Thanks Paul. The only ones I know about are Blaze, DTV, UTD, End of Watch and Cell. Discussing this subject with a big UK collector there may be others of the more recent SK releases. Do you mean this one, Paul?

    I think it was decided a couple of years ago not to include the stapled samplers in John's list, only the bound ones that actually state something about being a proof. But there are so many variations that every classification is somewhat arbitrary.

    And that is the UTD sampler I was referring to. Haven't seen one in years! I sold mine to Barry McGee a couple of years ago and haven't seen one since.

    Oh and by the way - the most up-to-date edition of the Bibliography is available as an eBook only. It's quite cheap and very helpful.

    Yeah I don't think I've seen that one before. Of course you have a copy! Man, I need to brush up on my sampler collection! Not sure if you would consider partial proofs in the same category but there's a few of those as well (Skeleton Crew, The Stand Uncut, Carrie trade paperback, Just After Sunset and Black House.) BTW I had a look at the bibliography and the DTV sampler seems to be B170.

    I'm not sure who I got this one from. It was from a UK collector on consignment.

    Looking back through my records I bought the Lettered edition on the 02/15/2007. Still waiting for its release and it's coming up to it's tenth anniversary of ordering it! That's why I never got one. May have to get the updated eBook. Thanks Michael.

    I bought a bunch of proofs from Barry McGee a couple of years back but the sampler wasn't part of it. Must have sold it prior to my purchase.

    I might as well post the remaining Uncorrected Sampler. The others have a card cover but this one is quite flimsy and delicate with paper wraps. As far as I know this was the only pre-publication advance UK release of Cell.

    B170 in the paper edition? I think the numbering changed in the e-version.
