                      First edition identification video

  • A first edition of 100,000 copies. Issued with a dustjacket and price of $13.95. As with many early viking editions, this book can be hard to authenticate as a true 1st edition. Look at the tips below to help identify a 1st edition Firestarter. Current Value = $35-$60
  1. Look for Viking's original Address on the copyright page and separately on the dustjacket. You should see 625 Madison Avenue on both.
  2. Look for the words "First Published in 1980" on the copyright page and no number line
  3. Look for the issue price of $13.95 on the dustjacket
  4. The book size should be 9.5h x 6.25w (this is the same size as many 1st ed SK books published in the 80's, just slightly taller then the all the 1st edition dark tower books)
  5. Two color boards (black with redish quarter binding)

Current value last adjusted August 2023
