Description

    Stephen King: Danse Macabre Deluxe Signed Edition. (New York: Everest House, 1981), first edition, 400 pages, black cloth with gilt lettering on front board and red decoration and gilt lettering on spine, 8vo (6.5" x 9.5"), glassine dust jacket and a red cloth slipcase. Signed "Stephen King" and numbered 188 of 250 on the limitation page on the recto of the copyright page. This finely bound first edition contains a wealth of information on horror in literature, television, and film from the 1950s to the 1980s, and is one of King's few book-length non-fiction efforts. Danse Macabre is the source of one of the more famous quotes by King: "I recognize terror as the finest emotion and so I will try to terrorize the reader. But if I find that I cannot terrify, I will try to horrify, and if I find that I cannot horrify, I'll go for the gross-out. I'm not proud." The book presented here is in fine condition, with no noticeable flaws present. The glassine dust jacket is torn along the spine and around the back of the book. A rare opportunity to acquire the small press first edition of Stephen King's thesis on the macabre. From the Ventura Collection.
