    Not trying to make you feel bad, but personally, I think it kills the resale value.

    Hmm without knowing how much it cost you I can't really speak to if it's a deal breaker or not. Maybe some research on eBay comparing what you paid for it to similar things. Though at the end of the day it mostly really depends on what you are collecting it for. If you're collecting it for a completionist mentality it may not matter (I know it wouldn't to me), but if you are collecting it for it's value then it probably matters a lot.

    Thanks Brad. It is Brad right? lol. Apologize if not, still trying to pick up on the names as I see 'em. I've contacted the seller with an unhappy but polite email in regards to returning it for a full refund. I know personally I'm not going to be happy knowing that the writing is in there even if it doesn't kill the resale value. We pay good money for writing that is suppose to be included with editions, not vice versa.

    It was a pretty penny Dan. I'm collecting not so much for resale value but after I'm dead and gone, that might matter to someone. Such as my children lol.

    You should check out this site. The members are knowledgeable on all things King. They can give you an accurate value on the book as it is and let you know if you got a good deal.

    It's a "Blue Monday"

    And I still find it so hard
    To say what I need to say
    But I'm quite sure that you'll tell me
    Just how should I feel today

    I'll really appreciate all of ya guys for your opinions now this and I'll shoot over there and see what they have to tell me. An update on the situation: Ed, the gentleman who sold me the book, is willing to do what ever to correct the problem. Even sent me his phone number, we chatted awhile, and said he honestly didn't know the writing was in the book. In the end I'll probably end up sending it back to him because the writing just bugs me to no end and I'd end up selling it just to purchase a "clean" copy.

Honestly I'm so pissed right now I don't even want the damn thing but if it's still of value I guess I should keep it.
    It doesn't destroy the value, but it will impact it to a large degree. If it's an unsigned 1st/1st, the effect is going to be more significant than if it's the signed edition.

    Considering everything you've posted, though, I'd probably just return it.

    Yea it's just the plain Jane 1st/1st and I probably will do that. I posted over at the Dark Tower just to get their feel out of curiosity. I've already had several private offers to sell me a clean copy once I get this cleared up. Can't say it enough. You guys as a whole are truly awesome!

    I think that is easily a reason to go through Ebay if they do not refund.

    I agree. I've purchased from him before without incident and I'd purchase from him again. He said it was an oversight on his part and I don't have reason not to believe him. Anyway, the return process has been initiated through eBay and the book is already on it's way back to him. I honestly don't foresee anymore issues.

    It will be awhile for mine since I am getting it with the CD slipcase. No hurry though since I have read the story.
