    Thank you Jerome.
    I took note of your remarks prior to the end of the auction where you stated that it could fetch $2,000 or more. I believe had it been open to US bidding it could well have climbed a lot higher. Anyway in the main it was your comments that put it eventually into my possession.
    Many thanks.
    Alec.

    I've just acquired a copy of SALEM'S LOT in which the d.j., matches none of those you've posted. My dust-wrapper states a price of $8.95 is not clipped but Father Callahan is present on the d.j. flap. I could provide a photo but I'm not sure how to do that!
    Cheers, TerenceóBats Over Books! p.s. Why is this d.j., such a frigging nightmare???!!!

    Just a quick follow-up to my previous email. I have just acquired what I believe is the "true" 2nd edition of the d.j., as the price remains $8.95, but "Father Cody" has been corrected to "Father Callahan." I'm new to you all and am not quite sure how to post a scan.
    Please advise. Terence McVicker, Bats Over Books!

    You have what is actually a 3rd state of the DJ. I stand corrected - see RF's comment below

    1st state (very rare - 5 known to exist) Has $8.95 price and "Father Cody"
    2nd state has $8.95 price clipped and reprinted with $7.95 also has "Father Cody"
    3rd state has $8.95 $7.95 and Corrected "Father Callahan" (I really should check what I write..)
    "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

    I can personally verify that at least two of the first state exist.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    That is a DJ from a later printing of the book.The DJ is of no collecting value.

    A couple of years after the book was printed, Doubleday did a "line item" price for Carrie SL, The Shining. All were $8.95.

    Thereís what I believe to be a 2nd state for sale on Etsy right now (see sellerís response to my question about list price) for $26,000. I know 1st states are essentially priceless (or at least thatís what Iíve been led to believe) but are 2nd states valued even close to what this is selling for?

    Hereís the Etsy listing, although something tells me most of you have seen this already.

    The 2nd state, even in mint condition, would be nowhere near $26,000! Maybe a couple thousand, although that's just a guess.

    I'll sell you a first state for $45,000 cash.
