A Note on Lettered/PC Editions; what makes a book valuable is the rarity of the publication and the number of existing copies at some future date after publication.
For instance "The Hunt For Red October" Tom Clancy's first novel is valuable as a first printing because the publisher only printed 5,000 copies, signed first prints are even more valuable since he only signed a small fraction of the very small first printing. Modern first printings of say Stephen King could be in the hundreds of thousands of copies (250,000-500,000 first printings). Lettered/PC Editions exist in a very rare production universe of only 26 copies A-Z or 52 copies AA-ZZ. In addition to the very tiny run of say 52 copies the publisher prints extra copies marked PC (publishers copy) to be given to the signing contributors and up to 10 copies for damaged or lost copies.PC copies still inhabit a very rarefied universe of some number less than 100 copies that is why a Lettered/PC Edition is so expensive and valuable at publication.
