I thought you might like to see the Japanese cover for The Magician

I just thought that people might find this interesting, on the Japanese cover, I believe that there is something that's not on the US cover, it says the number 2 right below the three big characters says the Magician, and I assume that the number refers to the series number, I found that interesting because we don't see it there.

This is an interesting observation...

I speak a bit of Japanese and in some cases you might be correct about the number 2, but in this case it's different...

The first three large characters read:
MA | JUTSU | SHI
All together (Majutsushi) meaning Magician, of course.

Underneath the three large characters, the smaller characters read:
NI | KO | RO <> MA | KYA | BE | RI
All together (Nikoro Makyaberi) meaning Niccolo Machiavelli.

The character NI (used in NIKORO) is often used for the number 2, but as seen here it is used as part of a name.

And on another note, it seems a bit misleading to me that Niccolo Machiavelli's name is underneath "Magician". I was under the impression that Dr. John Dee is the magician of the family, seeing as he's constantly referred to as...the magician.



Hope that was interesting to someone!

We are only listing the countries which actually publish the books. The Flamel series is published by Random House UK, who then sell into Ireland, but no Irish publisher has rights.

I am hoping however, that the Irish language rights will be taken up. I would love to see it in Irish!

Just a qustion... how can you tell if a book is a First Edition or not. I've see a lot of books that say frst edition but obiousley are not.

If I upload the copyright pages of my Flamel books can someone tell me if I in fact have first editions?

You don't even need to do that!

On the info page of a book where the copyright and publishers info is kept, you will see a small piece which tells you which year the edition you are looking at what published.

Below this is a string of numbers, e.g.

1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2

If the 1 is present this usually indicates a first edition (assuming the words 'first edition' aren't printed on the page!)

if the string reads

3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2

It'll be second edition and so on

so

25 26 27 28

Would be 25th edition (or from the 25th print run)

At least I think that's how it works!

Those numbers are the "printing" number.

the book would still be a "first edition" as "first edition" simply means it hasn't been edited at all. What you are seeing is the same thing as it was when it was first OKed for print.

The "printing numbers" tell you what batch it was printed with.

So a "First Edition - First Printing" would be of the first batch printed by the publisher.

If no edits are made and more books are needed you get the "First Edition - Second Printing" and so on.

Let me clear up this confusion. Most of you know I was a bookseller forever, so this is a question which comes up all the time.

The first edition refers to the first print run. It will usually say First edition © 2008
If there are reprints, there will be additional dates after the first, and usually the word "reprinted."

First edition has nothing to do with "editing." All books are edited (thankfully!) When books are reprinted, it is very, very rare for any changes to be made to the text, unless a glaring error has been discovered.
