First Editions Revisited
Okay, another question...
I have just acquired a "First Edition", one of 150 published by a trade
publisher, numbered and signed by the writer and slipcased. In all ways a
duplicate of the First Trade edition save for the absence of a dustjacket.
Can anyone tell me the "history" of this type of first edition. Which
writers "deserve" this special treatment; which publishers are known to
issue such pieces? I know of Cornwell and Parker, which suggests a nice
little frill given to long time best sellers. To me, these seem more
"collectable" than the Franklin Press editions, as they stand for some
writing achievement and are not deliberately produced as collectibles, but
more as mementoes to be given out (I assume) by the publisher and writer.
I choose Polesoft Lockspam to fight spam, and you?
