A 35 Copy of Signet 993








Robert Wiener sends a scan of a first printing copy of Signet 993 (right) that has had a 35 price embossed on the front cover. My first printing copy is shown on the left.

Normally, a Signet book with a 35 price would have an "S" prefix on the book number.

In a few cases, noted elsewhere in the "Oddities" section, Signet would put a 35 sticker over the colophon in order to raise the price from a quarter. However, this is the only case that I've seen in which they actually embossed a price on the cover.
