    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, Terence—Bats 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..)

    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.
