@IVIr,
Maybe the reply earlier about the cover being misapplied would be the way to go - too bad you can't upload a pic of it. What's the title and who is the author??

I recently bought the book (paperback) PATRICK ROY - WINNING NOTHING ELSE authored by his father Michel Roy - it has the TITLE PAGE UPSIDE DOWN - all I need is both autographs on it and maybe put it up for auction - would be interesting to see where it would end up, but as of now it's not for sale. I checked the other copies on the shelf and other copies in other bookstores and so far, my copy is the only one with this "flaw".

I have a 1952 First Edition of "Giant" by Edna Ferber. "This is a special edition published exclusively for the members of the SEARS READERS CLUB". Library of congress catalog card number 52-10412
Not sure of the value, can anyone provide an opinion ?

@Noddy24,
I have the Disney's Princess Collections hardback that is upside down and backwards too. I was told that because it is Disney it is worth something to a collector. Have any idea what the worth may be? Or who do I go to to find out?

@Corkey,
Would a Disney's Princess Collections hardback printed upside down and backwards (cover is normal) considered collectable?

@IVIr,
I have a popular first/first that was printed with the cover inverted, so when one opens the book as taken from the shelf, he would be opening to the very last page instead of the first. Since it is a first edit/ first printing, with DJ and it is in unread excellent condition, it is worth much more than a normal edition. Highest offer was $350, and I declined selling it.

People have been collecting books for centuries now. They have been collecting stamps for a much less time. Since books in print are slowly disappearing and fewer versions will be printed in the future, I believe the market for "freak" books, those with printing errors and those with binding errors will increase.
There are those collectors, and shall be more, who specialize in collecting various errors.

@Casino Joe,
I have a book entitled "Disney Princess Collection" written by Sarah E. Heller, Copyright: 1999 The front of the book is the back and visa versa. When you look at the book from the front, it says, "Disney's Princess Collection" Love & Friendship Stories... then you open it up, to the first page and the stories go upside down, it goes from the end of the story, to the beginning, but it's all upside down....So what?

@Casino Joe,
this book is printed "up-side down'" and backwards. Dated 1999, is it worth anything?

I have a copy of Dr. Axelrod's Atlas of Freshwater Aquarium Fishes, 11th edition which was bound with the cover upside down (or the pages upside down). Does this book have any value?

I have a 1941 Marian Anderson that has the cover put on upside down to the pages. Believe it is a first edition.
