This rare first edition of Stephen King’s first published novel is a must-have for any collector of King’s works. Carrie is the book that launched his phenomenal career; first printed in 1974, its success as both a book and a film ensured King would become “the best-selling American author during the final quarter of the 20th century,” according to the Chronology of American Literature. With an original production run of only 30,000 copies, a collector's grade-quality first edition of Carrie is a scarce commodity. This book maintains its clean and straight boards and tight, square spine. There are no markings, writings, or stampings, nor are any bookplates attached. None of the pages are ripped or creased; the end pages are clean. A first printing of Carrie is becoming increasingly scarce in this excellent condition. A new Mylar covering protects not only the novel but also the original dust jacket that accompanies it. This first printing of Carrie offers you the opportunity to own a piece of literary history, the book that made Stephen King a household name. Stephen King "Carrie". Doubleday 1974. dj/HC.
