Tomas,

On your page for the Bag of Bones UK S/L, you state the bookplates were pasted into 2nd edition trades. But the copy I recently received has a full number line from 10 to 1. It would appear to be a first printing instead of a second.

That's a mistype, I double checked George Beahm's guide just to make sure. It should read

The original UK limited edition wound up being canceled. However when SK went to England for a book tour he signed 2,000 bookplates that H&S pasted onto their 1st trade edition. Thus creating a limited edition (of sorts).


Thanks for pointing it out - FIXED!

Ha! I have yet to obtain the BAG OF BONES UK S/L, it has been low on my list in part because you said it was a second printing. Thanks for the clarification.

Speaking of edits needed, Tomas...

The Dolores Clairborne UK limited edition page still has the UTD contest image from a while back. It was never switched back to the photo of the book.

Thanks, Tomas.

I hate to mention it, but the UK Bag of Bones page now contradicts itself. It has the statement you added about the 1st edition books, but the bullet point just above that still says it used 2nd editions.

Say whaaaat? I don't see that there

:mrgreen:




(Because I just fixed it, that's what I get for just slapping a quick word change without reading the rest of the page). Thanks Patrick :)

:lol:


Tomas, as long as you are editing....

The U.K. limited edition page for WIZARD AND GLASS states that this red edition was issued with a "matching slipcase." My copy, and a couple others I checked with, indicate that it was issued with a black slipcase.

Thanks.

Thank you Patrick, I don't have the book myself I bet it was a standard copy & paste job from another limited. I have made the approprate change. Keep em' coming if you find them.

By the way, if you happen to have any sexy additions to the UK 1st list after Just after Sunset PM me, I'd love to add them to the "identify UK 1st editions" list.
