    Stephen King: First Edition of The Stand (New York: Doubleday, 1978), first edition (code "T39" present in the gutter of page 823), 823 pages, black half cloth and tan boards with gilt lettering on the spine, 8vo (5.75" x 8.5"), dust jacket. Deckled fore-edge. The Stand was King's fourth novel and fifth book to earn publication. It is an epic post-apocalyptic road movie of a story, set in a world decimated by the superflu, Captain Trips. The few remaining human beings must band together to stop the devilish villain Randall Flagg, a recurring character in many King stories. An uncut edition of The Stand was published in 1990, but this remains the very first publication of one of King's personal favorites among his works. The book has mild age-toning to the text edges, else fine. Very small closed tear to upper right front of the dust jacket, and mild rubbing to the boards, else fine.
