On stephen king collector website it has this at 1250 copies valued at 900 to 1100. But on the publisher grant site it says 1200 copies made. Are these two different books or same book but one site has made an error. Also I have a chance to buy the 1250 copy book for 800. Seller is firm. Can't find last one sold anywhere so I have no idea if that is a great price, fair price or rip off price. Help please if anyone has info on any of the questions in thread. Ty

The limitation page states: "The edition is limited to 1250 copies, of which 1200 are offered for sale." In other words, there are 50 additional, unnumbered copies that were used for the publisher's own purposes, which includes the replacement of copies that were lost or damaged in shipment.

The original sale price was $175. It was the first of the Dark Tower novels so long that it was split into two volumes for the limited edition. I'd recommend checking out abebooks.com to see what copies are being offered for -- they tend to be a bit on the high side. There's one on eBay right now for $799.

Yeah I saw that one. Didn't know if 799 was too high. For that much I can get a good copy of gunslinger 1st edition. Not sure what to do. Thanks for clearing the 1250 and 1200 copies for me.
