The Stand: The Complete & Uncut Edition by Stephen King Signed LTD Boxed Lettered Copy
Author: Stephen King
Location: New York
Edition: First Edition
Features: Signed by the Author and by the Artist. Deluxe Limited Edition in Wood Box. This copy is marked "AP". First edition thus, potentially LETTERED STATE. Signed by King and Bernie Wrightson, the book's illustrator. This book was originally limited to 52 LETTERED copies and 1,250 NUMBERED copies. With about 20 out-of-series (unlettered and unnumbered) copies produced to provide back-up in case of damage to in-series copies. This copy was one of the rare (20 or less) out-of-series back-up copies to which someone added the letters "AP" to the limitation page. The printed lettered copies had been marked "A" to "Z" and "AA" to "ZZ". From our research it appears that no "AP" copy was ever produced. What we believe we have here is an authentic limited edition, with authentic autographs, that is part of the 20 rare out-of-series back-up copies. Bound in full leather, all edges gilt, and housed in a red cloth-lined wooden box with lid. The plate on the lid is in the "black with brass lettering" state. Fine in original glassine dust jacket and fine publisher's box. Considered the most beautiful book bearing Stephen King's name.
Book Condition: As New: A beautiful copy and wood box.
Dust Jacket Condition: Fine: Very minor edge wear to the glassine wrapper.
