Notes 1st edition/1st printing, Signed Limited Edition. New book, Fine and unread. True 1st edition, released 11-10-09 by the publisher before the British signed limited, or the trade edition. SIGNED by Stephen King, this book is one of two copies we have that are unnumbered but limited to 1500 signed limited edition copies sold out by the publisher by invitation prior to public release date. This signed limited edition includes a set of 27 cards in their own box designed and drawn by Matthew Diffee, 4-color endpapers depicting the area in which the novel takes place drawn in map format by Paul J. Pugliese, wrap-around dustjacket art which is based on a photo by Ray Brown, an orange with gold flecks paper belly band which is affixed to the dustjacket (the dustjacket and band are in an archival, clear, removable protector), the book with black cloth binding with white spine printing and an embossed dog on the lower front panel, and a sewn-in silk ribbon bookmark. The book's shrinkwrap (removed from the book to preserve condition and to be sure the book was signed by the author) with its publisher label stating what the book is and its price, and the original publisher's box the book was shipped in, are included. Since the U.S. signed limited edition did not come from the publisher with a case, a custom slipcase addressing the problems inherent in such a thick book was built and now houses the book safely. This slipcase contains an ivory satin-covered lower page edges support block and full satin interior with a thumb-hole in the enclosed back end to prevent vacuum lock. The original book shrinkwrap with its publisher's label has been folded into an archival glassine envelope and it and the still shrinkwrapped box of cards are now housed in a separate small compartment of their own at the top of the slipcase. The slipcase is decorated on one side with the front panel of a hardcover trade edition dustjacket - same illustration as the signed limited edition dustjacket except no belly band. The unread trade edition hardcover book without dustjacket is included for your reading pleasure. The signed limited edition book, its dustjacket, the slipcase, the cards in their box, and the reading copy of the book are all new in Fine+ condition. The publisher's original shipping carton with slight surface scuffing from original publisher shipment is in Near Fine+ condition with the shipping label intact. Made into a TV series which is being stretched to 2 seasons, but this book contains the total content of the story. ; 9-1/2" x 6-1/2"; 1074 pages; Signed by Author
