    As much as I would love it, I would think King wold not allow another limited of the same title.

    That's why I have never bothered trying to get a copy of this edition. I heard it's just too much of a nightmare to keep clean!!!

    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?....

    Top tell the truth, I really don't like the Salem's Lot limited edition.....that material of the cover and the slipcase attracts dust from 4 house down the block! The only reason I kept it is because it IS Salem's Lot.

    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.

    Way to rich for my blood. I still can't believe I bought a signed edition of Dr. Sleep.

    Correct, there were several versions of the signed edition:
    300 limited edition copies signed/numbered 1-300 in black
    80 limited edition copies signed/numbered 1-80 in red
    15 deluxe leather copies signed/numbered I-XV in black
    10 deluxe leather copies signed/numbered I-X in red

    The regular signed edition has been selling anywhere from $1000 to $2000 (actual selling prices, not just listing prices).
    A black roman numeral signed copy(one of 15) just sold for $6000 on August 1st.
    A red numbered copy sold for $3500 in June.

    The gift editions are all over the place.
    I've seen a couple of them that did actually sell in that $400 to $600 range, but those included the extra set of prints and the traycase from the Collector. If you don't want those and are looking for just the book, $200 to $300 is possible with patience.

    A lot of them are listed at high prices, but with a couple of rare exceptions, they haven't actually been fetching those prices.

    Wow!!! I have the signed, but I think it was a "lower-end" signed. Didn't they have different signed editions??

    No, the Centipede Press edition of this book that was limited to 600 copies is unsigned. That said, copies of this book even unsigned are fetching prices in-excess of $400.

    The signed edition of this book is currently fetching a price of $6,500 on Abebooks!

    Thank you.
    Unfortunately, finding a VF copy of this book for $200 seems very unlikely as they are currently being sold at a much higher price...

    Ebay currently has two copies for sale, the first is a VF copy which is selling for $425. See link below:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/SALEMS-LOT-b...item3a8413cfef

    The other is selling for $399.99 or best offer, but has "a few light spots on the boards, soft shelf wear, dampstains at the edges of the front." See link below:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Salems-Lot-L...item1e7b4c5b4b

    Abebooks are selling one copy for $399.99 but this seems to be the same copy with damp stains that is currently listed on Ebay for the same price: See link below:

    http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/Sear...+lot&x=70&y=15

    According to the link on Abebooks, a signed copy will set you back $6,500 and the ultra rare Roman-numeraled edition costs $12,500!!!!
