New York, Doubleday, 1974. First Edition. First Impression. A lovely copy of King's first novel. An important highlight in modern speculative fiction. Publisher's code P6 present. Inscribed by the author 'To Eric - \ With all best \ Stephen King \ 10/12/79'. Not often found this well preserved. The jacket has a small amount of rubbing to the extremities and one short 4mm tear to the top edge. Crease to top of jacket, spine tips a touch bumped. Overall a very presentable copy. Trivial tanning to the spine. Not price-clipped, but ink crossing-out of price. [5875, Hyraxia Books].
