Questions on a first editon Long Walk and Lisey's Story

Post by Scriptonic » Fri May 30, 2014 9:57 am

I have two books that I would love help with identifying and pricing please. First up on the chopping block is what I think is a first (maybe second?) edition printing of The Long Walk. Cover price is $2.25. On the copyright page it reads "First Signet Printing July 1979 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9" On the inside cover it says printed in Canada.

The second book is what I believe is a First edition printing of Lisey's Story that was attached upside down. I tired taking the best photos I could to show this. It's hard to tell but the 9th photo you can see the direction of text on the page vs on the cover. Also you can tell by the colors on the cover vs the direction of text. The price on the dust jacket is $28.00 and on the copyright page it reads "1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2."

Here is a link to the photos http://imgur.com/a/f5aGr


Thank you for your help

With number lines starting in "1", I'm sure you have first printings.
