ADD TO WISHLIST

New York, Doubleday, 1974. First Edition. First Impression. King's first novel and a foundation of any King collection. The present copy inscribed by King 'For John - \ all best, \ Stephen King'. King's first published novel (though he'd written half a dozen prior to Carrie). The novel was the big break King had been looking for and the subsequent sale of paperback rights to NAL brought him both the start of good money and strong sales [Beahm, p171]. The hardback did well for a first novel, though the paperback really brought the success. The present copy is in fine condition, with a little softening to the jacket at the lower spine tip with one small nick, front fold a little rubbed and a couple of light marks to the endpaper. Small indentation to jacket at rear. All in all though a very presentable copy and superior to most copies we've handled. Cover art by Alex Gotfryd [6020, Hyraxia Books].
