    If there were 450 copies, and 125 were hardbound, wouldn't that make 325 of the paperback editions, not 225?

    Don't forget the Lettered hardbacks.

    Incidently my black Betts paperback has a black slipcase.

    You are absolutely right - so should it be:

    26 Lettered
    99 Hardcover
    325 Paperback

    The worst thing about this edition is that all 3 versions have exactly the same signature page.

    The numbers are still wrong.

    The last paragraph pertains to the original Limited Edition. It should be made clear that this information does not pertain to the Bett's version.
    ***From the original solicitation: "The book is bound in Rust Holliston Linen Finish woven cloth and hand painting morocco paper boards, enclosed in a cloth box. The edition is limited to 450 numbered copies of which 26 are lettered A-Z and bound in calf. $150 cloth/$250 calf."***

    So exactly what are the numbers, and what should the description say?

    According to Stu's letter there are 325 numbered copies. You stated there are twelve PCs. Those would seem to be the numbers.

    The info for the original S/L shouldn't even be on this page except where it helps clarify what this edition is.

    Edited description:

    A limited edition in trade paperback of 325 numbered copies, signed by SK. Issue price: $44.95.

    Notes:
    Olde New York Press previously published The House Next Door S/L. Because of the high binding costs, the press did not bind the entire first printing in hardback; instead, they bound what they felt they could sell. In time, however, the publisher realized that his unbound copies should be sold to recoup costs and decided to sell the remaining inventory to Bett's Bookstore, which issued a limited edition in trade paperback. Because these were bound using the original sheets, the limitation sheet states that "450" comprise the limited edition, but in fact the Betts Bookstore edition was 325 copies. The total number of copies in print: 450 copies, of which 1-125 were in hardback from the original publisher, and the remainder were in trade paperback from Bett's Bookstore.

    King’s introduction is less than one page of text, a few paragraphs - more of a note than an introduction proper. Despite the brevity of his contribution, King elected to sign the limitation sheets.
