    An Inscribed, Dated, and Signed Copy of Stephen King's First Published Novel

    Stephen King. Carrie. Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1974.

    First edition, first impression (with code "P6" printed in the gutter of page 199). Inscribed, signed, and dated by Stephen King on the half-title page. Octavo. 199 pages.

    Publisher's original maroon cloth with gilt spine titles. Deckled fore-edge. Very minor shelf wear. New endpapers. Dust jacket is slightly rubbed with a tiny tear to the foot of the spine. A near fine copy of the author's first novel.

    From a pre-publication form letter from Doubleday regarding the novel: "We feel it may be the novel of the year...it is part of a rare breed in today's fiction market -- a good story. Don't start it unless the evening in front of you is free of appointments...We think Carrie and Stephen King have a bright future, and we welcome this chance to share both of them with you."
