Sad ending indeed....pity too...this would be up there for the find of the decade award.

I would be also be careful of the Q37. I had someone try to sell me a minty First Edition Night Shift for cheap. When I looked closer he had taken a black pen and modified the code.

The jacket is exactly as suggested - one of the facsimiles.
The book is still a 1st edition though.
Any idea of the value w/ the fake jacket?
Anyone?
It's in mint shape.


As for value of a first edition first printing without a correct dust jacket, I would say $75.00 maybe $100.00 on a good day. I am basing this on a 1st /1st second state @ $700.00 with a good jacket and a 3rd state being $200.00 with a good jacket. You can see how important a correct DJ is to a book’s value.

The going rate on Ebay for a 1st Edition 'Salem's Lot (in this case, minus the 1st Ed dust jacket) is about $100-$150 (MAX).
