Median Market Value
The limited edition of Jaws by Peter Benchley is presented in four states: Artist, Numbered, Lettered and Roman Numeral. The editions are oversized at 7” x 10” and feature six full color illustrations by John Anthony Di Giovanni as well as a new exclusive introduction by Wendy Benchley. The Roman Numeral and Lettered editions are signed by Wendy Benchley, John Anthony Di Giovanni and Roger Kastel. The Numbered edition is signed by Wendy Benchley and John Anthony Di Giovanni. The Artist edition is signed by John Anthony Di Giovanni.
The Artist edition is limited to 1000 copies with a dust jacket featuring the iconic painting by Roger Kastel used on the original paperback cover and film poster. It is a full cloth, smyth sewn binding with two-hits foil stamping. It is the only edition of the three with the dust jacket, and is signed by artist John Anthony Di Giovanni. The edition is housed in an embossed paper covered slipcase with an acrylic coating. The bookcloth grade linen covering the edition is made using plastic collected from the ocean.
Adding 1 of 50 giclée prints to any Jaws state will significantly elevate the combined value. These prints were not numbered so no matching can be done on that part. On the other hand, a matching paperweight will top things off nicely. The cubes however, can match any number, and even letters or roman numerals. So a matching set of the paperweight with any Jaws state, plus a giclée will be rare.
