Everything's Eventual 1st printing question

Post by Twice » Sat Jun 29, 2013 1:33 pm

I recently purchased a 1st edition/1st printing copy of Everything's Eventual in very good condition fo $10. The #'s on the copyright page are 1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2, which is as it should be, but there is no price on the dust jacket...which I think means it's a book club edition... What are your thoughts on its collectibility.

I usually save the 1st edition and buy a paper back to read.. but i'm considering reading this copy.

This is my 1st post to this forum. I got a lot of useful information from this website, and forum. I can't thank you all enough.

The book club started sending out what look like (and actually are) first edition books in book club jackets. You do have a book club edition, actually. The boards of the true first edition are quarter bound in light blue with grey boards and white pastedowns. I'm not sure the book club editions have this arrangement. Price on the dust jacket should be $28.00.
