I’ll start off the list with something I learned while following the advice of a Flickr friend.
A first edition of John Steinbeck’s , first edition with dust jacket, is worth around 0. Many titles were published virtually simultaneously in two places, for example, London and New York.
Additionally, some books by famous authors are better than others. The location of publication is an often overlooked but important detail in a list of information about a collection of books.
George Orwell’s was published in 1949 in both London and New York. Thrifty printers will not throw out a batch of sheets simply because there was a mistake on the page. Those first sheets now form an “issue point” that collectors use to determine how early in the printing process the sheet was printed.
This huge difference in value is largely due to the fact that more than 90% of dust jackets are destroyed, either deliberately or due to their ephemeral and fragile nature. Whichever hits the shops first is the “true” first edition while the other becomes the “first American edition” or “first English edition.” The value of a “true” first is typically always greater. When certain books are evaluated, the number of “mistakes” that occur in the printing process will elevate their value.
