Dan Brown Message Board
posts on 5/16/2006 4:53:07 AM
I like to explain that me, like all the Spanish population, am really annoyed with the last book of Dan Brown. Before writing anything about a country, specially if is something despective, he must visit the place and then see it with his own eyes. I just can't believe anything he can write and I REALLY have seen Sevilla with my own eyes. Furthermore I have to declare that the Spanish Sanitary Service are one of the best of the world. What have we, the Spanish population, done to you Mr. Brown?

Both copies are without doubt US edition/firsts in every way. The covers are both US and were purchased by me from 2 different booksellers in California. They are not ARC, Book Club etc. They both have US/Can pricing on inside front cover and on back cover. Line 10-1 & stated first edition. As said before they are identical in every way except for the typos. I have photos of the relevant pages and cover. Surely we must be able to get info from Doubleday or the printers on the first printing!

I know that there are two advance reading copies before, the 1st ed.hard cover, (1st copy has a red cover,2nd has cover like the the book, Mona Lisa picture) I know the errors are in the 2nd advance reading copy but the page numbers off a few pages from the hard cover ed. I checked my 5 1st. ed. and found them all to have the errors. it doesn't make any sense to correct the errors and then print copies with the errors. I also know the the U.K. cover is different than the U.S. ed. are your two copies both U.S. ed.

Thanks for you information, now I need to go through my U.S.1st Ed.(I have 5)and see if I can find the same thing. I mentioned in an earlier post that between 2nd & 6th printing Lyon/Lillie was corrected, also I've narrowed it down to between 17th & 20th printing Skitoma/scitoma was corrected. If what you found is correct the corrected 1st will be even be worth more than the ones selling now.

I have 2 absolutely identical US 1/1 of ISBN 0385504209. However 1 has the typos lyon and Skitoma and the other has Lille and Scotoma. I have checked each one page for page, 9.5x6.5, US cover, price inside front and on back cover in USD and CAN above barcode. Font size is same, final page 454. Copywrite page April 2003, number line 10 down to 1, First Edition, printed in United States of America.
Whilst i am in Australia, both books were bought by me from different booksellers in California (not Ebay!)
Does anyone know the exact history of the first printing and at what point the changes were made?
