It Hodder & Stoughton 1st Edition

Post by Jay127 » Fri Oct 25, 2013 11:14 am

Hello all,

I've come across a first edition of the UK version of It, signed, dated, and inscribed something to the effect of "to john, watch out for those red balloons". I've been looking around and can't find anything online regarding print run, value, etc. Book is in nf condition, dust jacket is fine. I appreciate any insight. Thanks!

Condition is everything when pricing. Pictures are needed.

I found 2 copies of Salems Lot on Amazon and one of them is clearly a Book Club Edition and it doesn't have a price BUT there's a version thats taller and also doesn't have a price but doesn't say its a Book Club Edition. Does anyone know what the reason for the difference an size and indication is?

The BOMC issued the book in the two different sizes when the publisher (Doubleday in this instance) changed the size.. If the dust jacket doesn't have a price, it's a book club edition.
