    That's correct. You can confirm this by checking the indicia (the text inside that lists the publisher, and date, etc) and see that this was published by Del Rey in Oct 1977.

    So I found yet ANOTHER variation, and I'll post the image to the main post (and Jedi Journals) once I get it scanned; but the 39th printing has the Green Logo, a Red Circle, but with Black (instead of white) text.

    I'd still be interested to find one example of each printing....I know, it's a little nutz!

    **UPDATED** Added the new scan to the first post, it's the 10th image from the left. 39th Printing. How many more variations are there!?!?!?

    Regarding the Empire and Jedi hardcovers referenced above -- I recently discovered a non-Book Club edition of Splinter of the Mind's Eye in hardcover, which I did not know existed. Previously, I thought this and the first Han Solo novels were only available in hardcover from the book club. Also found the first Solo novel in a non-BC hardcover edition. So you never know about the Empire and Jedi novels...

    Where did you find one? These are hard to find and are almost always well over $100.00 if the condition is decent.

    Chris -- I'd actually located these in Lucasfilm's licensing archives, and was surprised to find them since I wasn't aware they existed. Do you know if the second and third Solo novels were available in non-BC hardcover? I didn't find these two...

    Here's the second one. I haven't found the third yet to confirm.

    My mistake -- the Solo book you have pictured is the one I was referring to. So we don't know if the first and third have non-BC hardcover editions, although I'm gonna bet that the first, at least, was done.

    Jay, I have a 35th printing I've had since the 80s. Nothing unusual; it looks like the 39th in your first post. If you'd like a scan, what do you want? Bitmap? File size? Where to send?

    If it's the same as the 39th, I'll make a note in the archives that 35th-39th are most likely the same.

    Does it have a special indicia? Actually, what's the pub year in the indicia (the fine print at the beginning of the book)? Oh, and the price and the ISBN # would be sweet. You can PM me, post here or email to Jay at Rebelscum.com.

    Thanks Tarfful!
