I am bidding on a copy of 'DT 2 Drawing of the Three' hardcover w/jacket and based on the description it has all of the markers of a 1st edition but the seller says that it says 'First Trade Edition' on the copyright page. Is this still considered a collectible first edition?!? I can't seem to find a clear answer online!

Thanks!

If it looks like this, it's a the 1st edition you're looking for.

Yes - if its the Grant "First Trade Edition" than its still a 1st edition.

Its designated as Trade because its not one of the signed/limiteds that came with a slipcase.

Still a collectible 1st though!

WOW!!! You guys are life savers!!!!!! The auction ends in 13 mins! Thank you so much for the answer!! Yes, the cover does match the cover that you have here under the 1st editions tab and the cover picture that you just sent! I just finished my brother's paperback copy last night and can't wait to start the 3rd tonight!! :D

Thanks again!!

Hi Lauren,

Don't forget that every US 1st and limited edition has it's own page with details including where to buy the book at the cheapest price at any given time; and the typical value for the book.

Drawing of the three page here

Cheapest non-ebay copy at abebooks for $40 (a dark tower ebay search link is also at the bottom of this page)

Congrats on winning the auction. It's actually my favorite of the series, both for the art and for the content.
