Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum, so I apologize in advance if I break any rules (I don't think I'm about to, but mistakes do happen
I just bought a copy of Different Seasons and I've been doing some research into whether or not it is a 1st edition, 1st printing copy or not. I bought it for $10 off of Kijiji and it is in quite good shape. I seem to be a little stumped, however, as all signs are pointing towards the book being a 1st edition, 1st printing, only the dust jacket doesn't have the $16.95 price; instead, it says $19.95?
Within my research I found out that later printings may have a different price on the DJ. I considered that maybe it was a BCE (Book Club Edition) as well, but I found pictures online of Different Seasons BCEs and they don't have any price. My conclusion is that a previous owner switched the 1st/1st book with a later printing DJ.
I am really hoping that someone on here might be able to help me out with my little conundrum.
I checked on every possible source online for some information on a later printing DJ with a $19.95 price but to no avail. I'm new to book collecting--definitely not in it to make money--and I can't wait to dive in to these stories! Shawshank Redemption, Stand By Me... umm, heck yes!!!
