Joe Hill's 20th Century Ghosts 1st?

Post by BindleofBricks »

I just purchased a 1st edition copy of the book off of ebay and received it today. I was a little surprised at the size of it, it seemed small like a book club edition. Can anyone help out with identifiers to make sure it truly is a 1st edition.

It has no dust jacket
USA price on the back $24.95
isbn 978-0-06-114797-5
Says US first edition
07 08 09 10 11 JTC/RRD 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
Red end papers
The real only thing that i guess concerns me is the size
almost 6 inches wide and 9 inches tall
Thank you for any info on this topic!

Hmm, I'm no expert on the Joe Hill editions but usually a numberline with a 1 in it is indicative of a first edition. Can you post a picture of the book?

I own one....your information is correct for a First Edition. The book is small.

Great book by the way.
