      July Supporter Giveaway   07/01/2019

      It's Christmas in July! The winner of the July Supporter giveaway will receive this beautiful Barnes & Noble edition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, as well as a special Charles Dickens tea by  theliteraryteacompany.co.uk .   I've been keeping this book a secret for so long (I couldn't wait until Christmas!) It's actually from a really lovely independent bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, the town of books. I'm so glad I finally get to show you! The picture doesn't even do it justice. A nice feature that you can't see in this image - the page edges are gold and (an extra surprise for the winner) the back is just as beautiful as the front! We also now have twice as much tea as previous giveaways!  (Thank you Literary Tea Company!)   As always, supporters are automatically entered into the giveaway and a winner will be chosen at random at the end of the month. If you want to enter this giveaway but you aren't a supporter, you can join in here https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   Good luck

Do I have a First Edition, and if so, what is it worth?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


During a recent clearout, I came across a yellow hardcover copy of the book Jacky Daydream by Jacqueline Wilson, published in 2007. When looking through it, I happened to notice that the book's number line has a 1 as the first number. According to the sources I've come across online, this indicates a first edition, and I decided to make an account here to confirm this. If it is a First Edition, and it is worth something, I'll be looking at selling it, as I could do with the money and don't really need the book.


So, a few questions.


1. How do I definitively determine that the book I have is a First Edition?


2. If it is a First Edition, what is it likely to be worth, if anything at all?


Thanks in advance for any help, I really appreciate it.

Welcome to the forum, but to be honest, I don't think we're the forum that can give you definitive answers you're looking for.  We're a forum of readers and it sounds like you need a more specialist book collecting/selling website.  Although you've already done some research online, but you'll probably need to do a bit more searching to find the information you need, or maybe you could take it to a specialist book dealer to see if they can help.  I just googled "confirming if a book is a first edition" and it came back with reputable book sellers with help pages about rare books and first editions, so that would probably be a good start and may lead you onto the specialist help you're looking for.
