Could my copy of The Wastelands be rare?

    I have a copy of The Wastelands that goes to page 23(the picture of Shardik) then you flip the page and it starts all over from the beginning. Was wondering if this is rare or are there many more out there?

    I think that copies like this have no unique value other than that you can return it to the place you purchased it for replacement; that is, it's nothing more than a defective product.

    ...error in the binding process...

    I had a copy of Koko like that, except it was a 30-page replacement halfway through the book. As in, it went 348, 349, 350, 321, 322, 323...then when it cot back to 350 it jumped to 380. I was completely lost so I went to a bookstore and read those 30 pages standing in the aisle.

    I don't know but it would be neat to have a quirky copy in your collection:)

    All I can say is hang on to it until you check into it. Stephen King's books have a way of distinguishing themselves as collectable above and beyond all others. The famous misprint of Salem's Lot rakes in perfectly huge bucks. So hang on to it.

    Rare-ish. But not likely to be considered valuable unless you could find someone who collects misprints and misbound books.

    Thank you all for your input. Although it would be nice if it was valuable I like just having a copy that's a little different. Maybe it's from another level of the Tower? Hehe

    So I was wondering, is it a hardcover copy, or a trade paperback, the softcover that is approximately the same size of a hardcover? Do you know which printing it is, or what year it was published?
