    so... working through a second box from the double day files and finding new stuff... got a question.

    Does anyone else have the publisher's letter that accompanied the Pet Semetary proofs?
    I am curious as to which one it is if you do.

    I have two different letters...
    this is the first one (including the original non-letterhead signed copy) dated august 1, 1983



    but there is a second version also... dated October 4, 1983
    hmmm I know there are two states of the actual proof... I have both... but wondering if different letters accompanied them... and if so, which letter goes with which state?

    Perhaps the typed Arc is the "Bound galley ".

    Haven't seen those letters before. I don't recall where I got this information, but according to my records, there is also this slip which references an "early bound galley".

    these aren't for First editions....actually not sure what edition they are for... but these doubleday unbound in-house proofs are still pretty cool....and I don't think I've shared pics of these titles before.
    Carrie (3 copies):




    The Shining (1 copy):


    Night Shift (2 copies):

    Another night shift copy:



    another shining copy:


    and a salem's lot:


    so I discovered these are proofs for the "redesigned" 1990 6"x9" re-releases that Michael Autry mentions at the bottom of this letter.

    It would take a bit of time, and of course be subjective, but what do you think about rating each proof for its rarity. 1 being not very rare, 5 being very rare?
    Just a simple asterisk after each title, then the rating.

    Sounds like a fine idea Jerome.

    BTW....I will be featuring a rare Proof in a Silent Auction at Betts tomorrow at noonish....in 30 years I have only ever seen one other copy for sale (and Bob Jackson sold it to my wife!)....this will be a 5 rarity hands down.
    Captain, Road Prison 36 : What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.

    Dragline : Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.
    Luke : Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand

    Darn, I just blew five grand at the track!
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    Mike also has the full set of US Green Mile proofs:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/STEPHEN-KIN...UAAOSwEaBaKJQv

    A maximum number of these sets is probably between 10-12. I have one. I know of four or five others in collectors' hands.
