Hi I found a copy of Carrie and Night Shift online but I'm a little confused on the edition. Both of them are $5 not sure if I should buy them or not.

Carrie has O12 on the inner martin of page 198. It's in rough condition

Night Shift has an X on the inner margin of page 336. It's also in rough condition and is missing its dustjacket.

If anybody can tell me anything that would be great

Thanks

They would be good only for reading copies. As collectibles, there's no value.

when I was a beginning collector, books like those would be awesome to have, but if you are at a level where you can pay a lot and want a TRUE first edition of an early Doubleday - then educate yourself in IDing them and buy based on the dust jacket's condition as that's the part everyone see's first. I got a library copy of a 1st of Night Shift - but because the jacket is so nice - I love it and can show it off despite the library markings, etc on the book itself.
