Bookpoi - A guide to identify rare and first edition books

 

Random House Publishers

You can search for collectible books published by Random House on Abebooks.com, eBay.com, Biblio.com and Amazon.com. These links will take you directly to search results for collectible and rare copies of Random House published books on the respective sites.

Random House has the unusual practice of indicating first editions with a number line starting with 2 instead of the number 1 and the words FIRST EDITION (in small caps) on the copyright page, this practice applies to Random House Inc. and Random House of Canada books only. 

Random House Group, Random House Ltd, Random House Trade and Random House UK all have the typical number full number line of 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 or 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 or 1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2, then delete the number 1 for the second printing and so forth.

Random House Australia states First Published with a date for first editions and Reprinted with a date for later printings.
