Dustjacket States of Different Seasons

Post by classicalsteve » Tue May 26, 2009 8:58 pm

Does anybody know about the two different dustjacket states of Different Seasons? On the first printing of Different Seasons, it seems the vast majority of copies had all the lettering in white on the dustjacket. However, on some copies, the color of the Viking symbol is occasionally shown in yellow where the rest of lettering on the book is white. Is there any priority between the two or were they printed simultaneously like that?
My copy shows the Viking symbol in white matching the rest of the lettering on the dustjacket.
thanks,

Do they both have the 625 Madison address on the back flap?

What about the date code on the front flap?

Steve, I posted your question in the Collecting Questions thread in the Calvin's Corner thread of TheDarkTower.com. Maybe someone there has an explantion.

My copy, which I got when it was first published, has the gold Viking logo. I didn't even know the white version existed until your post.

I just checked my copy of this book, which I'm sure I bought the day it was released here, and the Viking logo is YELLOW. I checked the 1st edition criteria and everything matches. Hope this helps.
