Hello,

I have just recently purchased a 1st/1st of the Blaze for $6.00. Everything looks fine about it, pages look new, jacket has little ware to it and then I remove the dust jacket. There right on the middle of the back board is a huge sticky security sticker! I tried simply peeling it off slowely but it started peeling of the paper so I just stuck it back. Does this sticker decrease the value? Do you think should buy a different copy? Much thanks for your help,

Sincerely,

Jake E. Stief

Jake, I personally have no idea. I HATE IT that some of the stores do that.

If the answer isn't there, feel free to post there. Many of the foremost King collectors belong to that forum, so hopefully someone will be able to answer your question.

You can buy this book on line 1st edition Fine for .99 & $3.99 shiping. The damage has been done & FACE IT this book is only worth .99. I recently bought CLIVE BARKER'S COLDHEART CANYON 1st FINE on line for .75. New books these days with LARGE print runs are just so much ink & paper unless signed.

Thanks I'll have to try that one website you posted. As for your reply needfulthings, I agree that the book is not worth more than maybe $5.00 (Wouldn't go as low as .99) but I don't think I want to spend that much money for another copy of this book. I'll just try my luck at the upcoming book fair for a 1.00 copy, no tax or shipping.

You know I agree about the sticker's prescense and degredation of value, however, because I know a 1st edition of blaze is not something of significant value, period, the prescense of a sticker really is not relevent. Don' t worry about it.
