As many of you may be aware, I specialize in collecting proofs of King's works, including anthologies, etc. Because I have neither the time nor the energy to start another thread showing my collection, I am posting the link to my collection from TheDarkTower.org:

http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/showthread.php?6011-Book-Collection-jhanic-proofs

I want to emphasize that these are books that I own. I don't own everything, of course, but I'm trying!

I welcome any comments and/or corrections.

Collecting Stephen King proofs...kind of a niche field in which to collect.

Still a little envious though. I'm sure the sense of self satisfaction is immense as a result of such a compilation.

I don't limit my self just to the proofs, though. I also have almost all the US and UK 1st/1st editions, most of the s/l (only one lettered edition, though), gift editions, etc. I really like the proofs, though.

My latest (thanks, Hannes!). The proof of Full Dark, No Stars with the white tape spine:

http://i469.photobucket.com/albums/rr60/johnhanic/US_Proofs/FullDarkNoStarsproofwithwhitetapespine.jpg

This gives me 96 US proofs, 43 UK proofs, 54 anthology proofs and 18 proofs of books about King.

A Life in the Cinema (introduction):

The ARC of A Life in the Cinema is different than the previous one I posted. The previous one was labeled as the "Launch Party Edition". There are some minor differences between the two.

Wonder how many collectors have all four,since the books are related. I made slipcses for mine and have the two corrected and two error books slipcased together. I may be strange but I like the older ones with crappy covers and just the facts printed on them or even just the spiral bound galleys. They seem more like a part of the book production process and less like a marketing tool to me.

jhanic
08-03-2012, 11:04 AM
I agree. I also have the spiral bound manuscript proofs of both books. I like the fact that these are close to the most early versions of them, other than the manuscripts themselves. (I also have a copy of the Desperation manuscript. That sucker is about three-four inches thick at least!)

Scars, by Richard Christian Matheson (Introduction):

And a complete set of printers proofs of Cell:

Page 13:

This latter may also be called blue lines. According to the seller, there were no more than 20 of these done. Most, I assume, were used by the printer and destroyed.

I have developed some contacts that are able to supply me with the new proofs. Otherwise, I'm known pretty much as the "proof guy" so I get offers occasionally from other collectors. I also haunt eBay, ABE, etc. for items.

Very unusual. This is the only one in my collection. I do have a number of manuscripts which, of course, don't have a copyright page, but this is the only bound edition that doesn't.

This is numbered. It also had the "EMBARGOED HODDER & STOUGHTON" on each page.

This gives me 130 US proofs and 49 UK ones. I also have numerous proofs of anthologies, books about King, etc.
