MY PRETTY PONY

by King, Stephen [artwork by Barbara Kruger]

Condition: Fine with no dust jacket


New York: Whitney Museum [1989]. Fine with no dust jacket. 1989. First Edition. Hardcover. First edition. 1/250 non-numbered copies [of a total edition of 280 copies, the remaining 30 copies being author/artist contributor copies numbered in Roman Numerals] signed by both Stephen King and Barbara Kruger on the signature/limitation/colophon page at the rear of the book. Very oversize [roughly 14" x 21"] and quite heavy volume, red leather spine with solid metal faced "boards" binding [which, ideally, should only be handled with gloved hands to avoid marring the brushed finish with fingerprints], with a battery-operated clock inset as part of the front cover [battery no longer operational, as planned, although it could be replaced if one so chose]. NB: This book was not issued in, nor is this copy accompanied by, the double-tray drop spine box [traycase] that was optionally available for separate purchase through BookLab. At least two variants of the traycase have been reported, but neither of them originally came with the book, although some unreported number were purchased and over time "married" to copies of the book by their respective owners. Fine copy [unread with the inter-page protective tissue inserts still in place] [with the usual light fingerprint marks to the brushed-finish metal boards from not always being handled with gloved hands] [not issued in Dust Wrapper] [enclosed inside of a clear plastic bag, which is still present with this copy] inside the original mailing carton.; Signed by Author .
