    Hi there! I just bought "The Regulators" and "Desperation" on Abebooks, both 1st editions, but "The Regulators" didn't came with the dust jacket. Does anyone have this edition and could scan it to me? I know it sounds weird, but I wanted them to match :apologetic:

    Should have bought that copy of The Regulators back when...dunno if it was a first or what, but it had the same kind of jacket cover as this copy of Desperation I purchased. Could have mailed it to you. I get up that way I could look see again, used bookstore...maybe they still have it though it's been...a time, a year or more, two? You could always folly a guy down an alley...don't anyone get their panties in a wad...allusion to On the Road.

    Welcome! You can always head on over to your local thrift store. You're sure to find a copy eventually.

    WOW I was in the local used bookstore the other day and saw the copy you are looking for.. Of course I didn't buy it like a fool since I already have one.. See now, that's why I like buying extras as often as I can!! I'll probably be back out there soon and I'm sure they will still have it. Will let you know if I have any luck! I HATE when I order a book and it comes without the jacket! Often times, they don't even inform you that it has no jacket. :(

    I've no idea if this is the cover you're after but here is a "scan" of the UK first edition?
    Together with the UK's matching Desperation cover.

    Evening FlakeNoir , so if your copy is the same as mine perhaps the artwork was used worldwide?

    Hiya, K.Zepp.. mine was second-hand, so I'm not sure where it first started out.

    A Google Image search for "The Regulators" cover brought up quite a number of illustration variations. So lomawood, if you do the same "Image Search" you should be able to find the Regulators dust cover that matches your copy of Desperation, then you could download that image and print it?
    Good Luck:thumbs_up:

    Goodness! I own these both and never realized that if you put them next to each other they are all one picture! I know what I'm doing when I get home :)
