Description

    Stephen King. The Plant. Bangor: The Philtrum Press, 1982, 1983, 1985.

    The complete set of these privately printed chapbooks including an unsigned part one limited to 200 copies; part two limited to a total of 226 copies signed "designers copy" lightly in pencil on the limitation page; and part three limited to 226 copies signed "printers proof" lightly in pencil on the limitation page. All copies slim octavo. 32; 36; 56 pages.

    Green wrappers with black titles on the front cover. Appear to be in unread condition.

    This was going to be King's ongoing novel and was not offered for sale, but given out as a holiday gift at the end of the year. The distribution was limited to 200-226 copies with a handful of extras which were utilized as designer proofs, although they do not differ in any way from those actually sent as gifts except that they were not signed or inscribed. Very hard to find complete sets thus a scarce item. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
