Dolores Claiborne First Question

Post by Crazyjake777 » Sat May 19, 2012 10:27 pm

Does anyone else see

£14.99
(export only)

on the dust jacket of their Dolores Claiborne first editions? How does this affect the value.

Also, does anyone know why this book is not as wide as King's other books? Most are 6.25 inches but this is 5.75 inches. Just curious.

You have an export edition. The true UK first edition is 6.25".

As the proper UK edition is only worth about £5, yours would be £3.

I forgot to ask in my previous comment, was the first UK edition of Dolores Claiborne not published by Hodder & Stoughton?

Ok, so my copy which is a Viking, must be a reprint, export edition.

Thanks : )

Viking is the US publisher. The UK is H&S.
