    Hello I have a signed first edition of rose madder and was told by the Stephen king Facebook page i can get the signature looked at / possibly authenticated here. Also I found the code that says it is a first edition my question is everything I've read is saying it should have a dust jacket price on the dust jacket. It should say 24.95. However on this particular one there is no dust jacket price anywhere on it. Does this mean something?

    Usually, if a book is missing the price on the front inside flap of the dust jacket, it means that it is a book club edition.

    No price on the dust jacket generally means that it is a book club edition dust jacket -- it doesn't say anything about the book itself. Sometimes original dust jackets are replaced if they're damaged.

    First edition books should say the following on the copyright page:

    First published in 1995 by Viking Penguin
    1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2

    Hi backatcha!
    Can you post a clear picture of the signature?
    Check the following link and see if your book might be similar to one of these.
