Hello!

First post here, been a avid King reader for many years now and I were just going through some of my books and I realised something.

My copy of "Bazaar" is bound upside down! So naturally I wonder, is this rare or is the first printing this way?

Regards
Christian

I understand that it wasn't intensional, but sometimes a whole printing get bound the wrong way. I've seen it happen here in Sweden. More often than not all or most of these are destroyed. But sometimes a lot of the first printing get sent of so fast that they don't have a chance to correct the first batch.

Have anyone else here seen one? Because I can't find anything on the old interwebb about it!

Rare, but these things happen. This is a case, though, where rare doesn't necessarily mean valuable...there doesn't seem to be much of a market for book misprints.
