Anyone up for helping me update the UK 1st edition list?

Post by TheCollector » Wed Mar 11, 2015 12:41 pm

Hey folks,

I recently got a question on how to identify the 1st UK edition of Doctor Sleep, the person had found the "identifying UK 1st editions" list on the site, but quite rightly pointed out that it's only updated thru 2008
http://www.stephenkingcollector.com/ide ... UK1st.html

Would someone be willing to give me info on the missing books so I can add them to the list?

Hi Tomas,
I have a few UK first editions from that era, I will pull them out when I am home from work and send some data through.

Cheers
James

Thanks Guys! I really appreciate it and will get that info update here in the next week or so.

Could one of you also crack open a 1st UK edition of Everything's eventual for me?

I have it listed as 1 3 5 7 9 8 6 4 2, but I have reason to believe I may have forgotten the #10 so really it would be .... 1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2. I don't have a copy myself though to say for sure.

Should be 1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2 - the 10 is in the middle

A collector's edition was also done for Waterstone's which had a special Author's Note by King in the beginning of the book. This was not included in any other edition, as far as I remember.
