Black House/Talisman

Post by brownt2707 » Fri Jun 19, 2009 7:19 pm

I have copies of both by random house, There is no price on either DJ. They have black boards and gold letters on spine. Black house has numberline of 24689753 and so does Talisman, but Black House says first trade edition. Are both of these first or are they BCE?

Without prices on the dust jackets they are both BCEs.

If they had prices you'd have a second printing Talisman and 1st printing Black House - however, the lack of price negates this.

On the stephen king website it says the numbers are suppose to start with 2 not like the usual. So I thought I must have first edition but not first edition DJ?

It's a book club edition of Black House. The actual trade first edition of Black House has silver lettering on the spine, not gold, and a priced dust jacket. Both the book club edition and the trade first have a numberline that starts with a "2". I have a copy of each--I use the BOMC edition for my reading copy.
