DescriptionStephen King. The Shining. Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1977.
First edition (code "R49" in the gutter on page 447). Octavo. 447 pages.
Black buckram spine over tan paper boards with gilt spine lettering. Original pictorial dust jacket. Housed in a custom black slipcase. Minor edge wear, and rubbing to spine head and tail and corners. Dust jacket is nearly perfect, with just a faint crease at the spine tail. A fine copy.
Doubleday was known for generally poor book construction and use of inferior materials at this time, but this copy has been well cared-for and has held up beautifully. An important novel by America's horror master, this tale served as the basis for Stanley Kubrick's wildly popular film by the same name.
