Signed First Edition of Stephen King's ClassicStephen King. The Shining. Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1977.
First edition with "R49" in the gutter on page 447. Inscribed and signed by King on the half-title page. Octavo. 447 pages.
Publisher's black buckram over mustard paper boards. Cloth rubbed at spine ends, with very minor fraying at joint folds. Gilt lettering on spine a bit dulled. Small spot to fore-edge; bottom edge a bit grubby. A couple of very tiny chips to the beautifully preserved dust jacket. A near 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.

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.View More Testimonials
