Sleeping Beauties UK Limited Edition

Limited Edition w/ slipcase

 


  • A Limited edition hardback with deluxe binding, slipcase, illustrated endpapers, Signed by both Stephen and Owen King. Issue price was £250. Current value $600 - $800

The 250 copy edition sold out within hours which is not unusual, but the first posts about it were in the early morning hours (3-4am pacific time) leaving many folks in the USA, especially outside of the east coast out of luck.

Something to look out for when buying these on the secondary market.

There were 9 different variants of the 1st trade edition produced in the UK, although none of them were signed by King. I'm listing them all here for the sake of being thorough: tdt.org has an excellent page up with photos of all editions. All variants seem to be selling for between $30-$50

  • Four different WH SMITH variants with a "collectors edition exclusive to WH Smith" with purple DJ. On the boards of the book one of four different animals are embossed in blue (Fox, Moth, Snake, Tiger).

  • Four different Hodder & Stoughton variants with a "Featuring Limited Edition Hidden Cover Illustration" sticker on the DJ. On the boards of the book one of four different animals are embossed in purple (Fox, Moth, Snake,

  • One Tesco variant with a blue cover and "Tesco Limited edition" sticker. On the boards will be only one animal, a peacock embossed in blue.
