    Actually...you can....

    DT2 for $45

    The buyer would have gotten it for $28, but I tried to snipe it one second before the auction ended.
    Was it sealed?

    Without any context, that would have been my assumption as well. The description suggests after they reached Z, they went on to number them AA, AB, AC...etc. I imagine if that was the case they likely would have identified an Author's Copy differently.

    I remember a listing on Berry Levin's site for a 'forged' lettered AP edition of THE STAND. The description went on to say that the designated letters were A, B, C...AA, BB, CC..so there should have been no such designation as AP. I always assumed that AP meant Artist's Proof. Further, there was the whole McCammon SPEAKS THE NIGHTBIRD lettered edition question that happened not that long ago where copies just magically appeared after being unknown for years. This is why I don't collect lettered editions that are the same as a numbered.

    If I recall correctly there was an Author's Copy on eBay awhile ago that spelled out both words.

    Found a picture of how DTII was marked. The DTI I saw looked the same based on my recollection.

    David (wizardsrainbow) owns lettered Gunslinger AY (see this post in his collection thread: http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/...ll=1#post90036 ). So it looks like there were 52 lettered copies issued and they were designated A-Z and AA-AZ.

    It would be great to clarify, but it probably will fetch something close to $10K.
    At that price one would think Gerald would put one of the mint condition GS DJ's he has on the book.

    After seeing Alec's new copy, we discussed the different lettered copies that have been seen. It is widely reported that there are only 35 copies of the Gunslinger Lettered edition. Stephen King's own web site states this (although incorrectly lists as AA-II) and the likes of George Beahm also stated this in various publications about King and his works. Gerald has also stated only 35 copies in the past.

    Why is this significant? Well if the sequencing was A-Z then AA, AB, AC, etc. then it would only have reached AI. David's book (the one shown in the Catalog) is AY. Also of all the books I have seen (AB, AC, AE, AF) they all share a similar rounded A, with a distinctive shorter left side to the A. David's AY book has a very different, sharp pointed 'A'.

    Beahm, later amended the count to 52 in his subsequent book reprints, Gerald's website has also been amended to state 52. My theory is that there were originally 35 with a number of unnumbered (although still signed) copies held back by Grant. At a later date he added the remaining 17 (hence the difference in the lettering).

    I have no evidence to support this and it's purely guesswork on my part. I would be interested if anyone (especially David) has any further information on this.

    Good for Gerald -- I felt bad that he wasn't able to get to the Dark Tower premiere, and then all the people Sony brought to town visited his shop.

    Very interesting theory and has some "validity" I think. I do NOT know a thing about original 35 and then 17 more later but the A's make some sense if you look at them, OR (and this fact I do know), sometimes different people did actual lettering/numbering of limiteds. Robert Weiner has told me that both he and Tom Canty numbered the same series and there is variability in how "Publisher's Copy" is written among other things....so ONE theory could be 52 were done but another person finished the remaining lettereds from the person who started.

    Thanks for responding David. So few of these lettered copies ever see light of day, photo's are few and far between. If another book after AI appeared (preferably close to the AY) it could clarify things one way or another.
