jingo first edition

Postby hotrod » Thu May 12, 2011 4:30 pm

:roll: How do I know if I have a first edition of Terry's book Jingo, I got it in 1997 and he signed it for me. I know it was published in 97 but cant tell if its a first edition as there is no info inside anywhere that I can see. :?:

If you defintely got it in 1997 then it is almost certainly the first edition because it only came out on the 6th November that year and they printed 120,000 of them, making it the most common of the hardbacks.

It should be printed by Gollanz, the book club edition didn't come out until 1998, and there will be a series of numbers somewhere on the page that includes the ISBN which must have a 1 at the beginning similar to the example shown below

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Hey Mad, how can you tell if it's a first print of a first edition? I didn't even know there was such a thing till recently.

If it has all the numbers Dotsie (just in case Mad is not online)if the 1 was missing itt would then be a 2nd printing of the 1st edition. :) although some start at zero to nine 0-9

OK, so what would a second edition look like?

Same here Chris. In fact none of my first editions are signed, although I might try and change that at next years Con.

And hellooo and welcome Hotrod! :D

I can't give you a screen shot as my books are still boxed,it would be the same as Mad's but the number sequence would be: 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2 and so on the lowest number would be that print edition, if they ran zero to nine the number sequence would be: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 in a straight run and again 0 would indicate 1st /1st, hope that clarifies it for you. :)

Nope :lol: I just don't see the difference there between 1st edition 2nd printing and 2nd edition. But thanks anyway.

Also, you might find that you just get a thumbprint. Although last year he did sign at the second signing session (try saying that fast).

I got my birthday present (Darwin's Watch) signed at the second signing session 8)
A poster outside one shop urged people to Dig For Victory, as if it were some kind of turnip.
