    That is a good price, which surprises me since his stuff is often overpriced compared to people selling the same items. Not sure if I have gotten anything from that seller, but they have a good rating, so I am sure the book is as described
    I just picked this book up for $190 in mint condition still sealed. I think it was a great price, but shows what you can get with patience.

    Does anyone have one of The Collectors cases for sale?

        Damn shame though, as Salem's Lot is a bloody good book!!!

        What it needs is a specialist publisher, expert in creating beautifully crafted books to really go to town and release a definitive super deluxe edition...

        Now where do we find such a publisher?....







        Hey Brian!.....
        I just came across this thread again as I was looking at CP editions of 'Salem's Lot. It only took three years

          I got an excellent copy (1/600) from Betts Books a while back. Not only was it still brand new and sealed in shrink wrap, it also came with a set of the original photos taken for the book. If I remember correctly I paid $225 for it.
          I thought I'd heard that the run of 600 lacked the interior photos present on the other editions, no? Perhaps I misunderstood something I've read, or perhaps you're saying the photos were separate and not in the book.

          It would be good news if this edition did have photos; I might then be interested in hunting one down - without the photos, it strikes me as just a big, black lump, scarcely more appealing then the common illustrated edition (Knopf etc.), which would have the photos. Ok, I'm overstating things - I like cloth books, I like Salem's Lot, and I like limited editions - so who am I kidding, I'd still want one of these, but not for $200+ without photos.

            Correct, it only has the cover photo and one photo page inside the book. My copy came with the traycase made by www.stephenkingcollector.com and a set of photos courtesy of Betts Books.

                I wish had those prints something fierce...

                  Interesting. I'd always assumed the B&N edition w/ all its art was a reprint-of-sorts of the Centipede edition -- didn't realize the prints were loose and not included in the latter.

                    Just the unsigned edition did not come with the prints bound in, they were sold separately.

                      Are the prints still available separately anywhere?

                        I would ask David at Betts Books - david@bettsbooks.com

                        If he doesn't have them, he should be able to track down a set, or at least keep you in mind next time he gets a set. I know he's swamped right now, so don't expect a reply right away.

                            No they're not readily available and tend to go for a tidy sum when they show up on Ebay.
