Lot is for a very unique and rare slipcased hardcover first edition from American horror master STEPHEN KING: This is a special limited signed first edition of the novel CHRISTINE by King, published by DONALD GRANT PUBLISHERS of Rhode Island in 1983. The printing was only 1000 copies, and each one was hand numbered and autographed by both King and the illustrator Stephen Gervais. This item is hand-numbered 21 of 1000 (see photo).
This richly illustrated 544 page work is presented with a unique illustrated dust jacket by Gervais, and is housed in a red slipcase. The book is in excellent condition, with clean white pages, solid bright boards, silver-embossed titles on cover and spine, no markings, stains, tears, rips, mold, mildew, foxing, etc. The slipcase has one issue: a previous owner obviously set the case down on a shelf that had been recently painted, and some white paint residue is affixed to the bottom of the slipcover (see photo).It does not affect the book itself in any way. It can likely be removed, but we leave that to the purchaser to determine how best to deal with this. This is a very rare work, and even more rare in that it has such an early numbering, placing it in the top 3% of the edition: a very desirable addition to a serious book collection.
