When was this copy of Carrie printed?

Post by mmcc73 » Fri Aug 03, 2018 12:19 pm

Hi All - I just picked up this copy of Carrie and I can't find anything to help me figure out when it was printed.

The binding is purple cloth with black or grey paper.

There is no price on the dust jacket, no "Book Club Edition" printed on it anywhere. There's nothing printed in inner margin of page 199. The copyright page is pretty generic.

I'd appreciate any information you might have.

As this is a book club edition there is no way to determine when it was printed. They are still in print, so it might have been last week!

I think they're only printing the larger 9.5" format now, not the smaller 8.5" format. If yours is smaller chances are good it's an earlier printing.

Admittedly even that's a bit of a guess
