Salem's Lot - Stephen King 1st edition

1st Edition Cover



This edition is unique in that is has three states. The states refer to differences in the Dustjacket due to
errors in the printing of the dustjacket only. The book itself is the same across all three states; and all three states show the words First Edition on the copyright page and code Q37 on the inner margin of page 439.


  • First State - The front flap of the dustjacket has an unclipped price of $8.95 in the top right corner and the text below refers to Father Cody instead of Father Callahan in later states/editions) Street Price

  • Second State - The $8.95 is clipped off and a price of $7.95 is printed on instead. Father Cody is referred to instead of Father Callahan Current value = $700 - $900

  • Third State - The revised flap shows an unclipped price of $7.95 and the correct Father Callahan is printed. Current value = $200 - $350


The title King originally chose was Second Coming, but he later decided on Jerusalem’s Lot. The publishers, Doubleday, shortened it to the current title, thinking the author's choice sounded too religious.
