Book and dust jacket are fine. [and:] Danse Macabre. New York: Everest House [1981]. Octavo. 400 pages. Quarter burgundy cloth over red paper boards. gilt spine titles. Some corner bumps on covers. Overall fine. Dust jacket is near fine with slight wear. Horror maestro Stephen King, at the urging of editor Bill Thompson, agreed to write his own history of the horror genre, focusing primarily on his influences from film, television, and literature. The result, Danse Macabre, published in 1981, is an entertaining and erudite companion to his own novels and a must for the King collector. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
