    King's Duma Key signed and remarqued 1st edition

    I've now decided to get out of the remarque business and am going to use the money towards my book and a 1st editions! Duma Key 1st edition in mint condition, signed by Stephen King, housed in an Overlook slipcase and with a flawless remarque by Mark Stutzman. I'm going to place it on ebay but thought i would offer it up on here first

    LOL how else would I ask? Oh, I just thought of a PM, huh? See, I'm a remarkably intelligent man but sometimes like all geniuses, I find myself lacking in common sense and ordinary logic. It doesn't happen all the time, but sometimes just like what I said above.

    Thanks again Grant. Tom, I have to remember that...I did send a PM but no reply.
    I see a signed trade at Camelot for a lil too much.
    But Grant, don't you think $125 for a second printing of 11/22/63 signed is a pretty good deal? I sure think it is since people will pay more attention to the fact it's signed than it's a second edition, plus I have a custom slipcase to put on it....

    Never fear, Tom will get back to you (he's in the UK, so you'll need to factor in the time difference - plus he's working on his some to be published debut). And, yep, I think a 2nd print flat signed is pretty good at $125 (where did you get this book, for the sake of curiousity?) ...

    Thanks Grant. I got it at Betts...I think he has one left; he only had two for sale at a "special" price.

    Cool, I was thinking that a signed 2nd print might be possibly bogus, but if it's from Davis, then it's 100% genuine.

    It does seems odd a second printing could be out already, doesn't it? The book was just published! But like you said, it's from David at Betts so it has to be legit.

    4th?????????? That's astonishing. Do you know how many first or seconds were printed?

    I haven't been able to find the print runs anywhere, but I would assume between 900,000 and 1,200,000. As the print run on Under the Dome was 900,000 and FDNS was 1.2 mil. Also most of the more recent King books seem to be around those numbers.

    Thanks Dan. That's so amazing that so many hardcovers can be printed like that because of one author. Well, it sure looks like the second printing is going to be worth a pretty penny since there are so many other editions now. And just because it's signed is what people really want, not so much the edition (at least when it concerns King).

    Wasn't the newest GRRM book in his long saga already on at least the 2nd printing from Amazon pretty much right away, maybe before it even came out?

    I read somewhere that there were 760,000 copies of 11/22/63 printed through the third printing. I still haven't been able to find out how many first printings were done.

    Yea they're hard numbers to confirm. I think the mass market publishers keep them vague on purpose.

    I remember hearing years ago that the average print run for a Stephen King HC was 2 million, so if there must have been far fewer than that for 11/22/63 if it's already in the fourth printing......

    I still don't know how many were done as first printings. I am guessing at between 500,000 and 600,000.
