I have come across an edition of Carrie but have some questions.

It has a first edition cover and does not indicate book club edition. It has a price of $15.95 on the DJ. It has a copyright date of 1974 but does not indicate number of printings. Page 199 has a gutter code of AA42. The book and DJ are in very good condition. Binding is tight and pages are clean.

My questions are in regard to what printing is this edition? Also, what is an appropriate price for this copy? Between the price and gutter code, I'm guessing the printing date to be around 1983-1984. Any help and information would be greatly appreciated.

I'd say, if the condition is near fine/fine, value would be around $10-15. Later printings are just not valuable except as space fillers or reading copies.

There are many later printings of Carrie. They tend to be in much better condition than any 1st edition, but obviously they cost a lot less.

I would recommend these to anyone who is not able to afford the "real deal", over a book club edition.
