About This Item

First Edition, First State of this classic King novel, basis for the hit film. Perfectly Fine condition in equally Fine bright dust jacket. What makes this a truly extraordinary copy is this: Stephen King was a huge fan of the late author John D. MacDonald and was happy to send him signed copies of his books. This beautiful copy has the most incredible inscription imaginable:
For John and Dorothy McDonald - / Bet you didn't know they piled / shit this high, did / you? / Stephen King / 7/29/86


IT weaves a supernatural tale of seven socially outcast kids who find themselves brought together one summer to battle an ancient and deadly shape-shifter known as IT. IT emerges from the sewers once every 27 years, using it's polymorphic abilities to terrify and prey upon children in the rural town of Derry, Maine - often in the form of the demonic Pennywise the Clown. IT was made into a television mini-series in 1990, starring Tim Curry and more recently as a blockbuster film (2017).
