Presentation copy, inscribed by King on the front free endpaper: "For Stanley-/All best, and thanks/for coming by-/Stephen King/7/17/82/[flourish]". On the front pastedown are two of Wiater's bookplates. Octavo. [xii], 823, [6, blank] pages. Publisher's black cloth backstrip over tan boards, spine lettered in gilt, dust jacket. Minor rubbing to jacket, very faint crease to front jacket panel, binding rubbed and somewhat soiled, warm gift inscription to Wiater on rear pastedown, small birthday card to him affixed to the verso of the jacket flap.
