The Stand: The Complete and Uncut Edition [Coffin Signed Limited]

by Stephen King

Condition: Fine


New York: Doubleday, 1990. First Edition. Hardcover . Fine. xxviii, 1241 pages. Pretty much everyone's choice for King's best book, and the rare uncut version that may actually be better (most books would be improved if they were shorter--following Elmore Leonard's dictum, 'Try to leave out the part that readers tend to skip'). *** This signed, numbered limited edition is also one of the most sought-after King limited editions, in large part due to its clever design. Only the large print run, 1250 copies, keeps this from being ridiculously expensive (instead of just a regular level of expensive). *** The book, a darkly religious novel, is bound in black leather, not unlike a Bible. It is laid into a black wooden box, giving it the colloquial name, 'the coffin edition'--which also suits a book with a body count north of 5 billion souls. Each copy is signed by King and the illustrator, Berni Wrightson, on the limitation page. First edition (first printing). A fine hardcover copy; no dust jacket, as issued. Glassine tanned as usual. Wooden box fine. In the original mailing box. Copy 979 of 1250.

The Stand is a post-apocalyptic horror/fantasy novel by American author Stephen King. It re-works the scenario in his earlier short story, Night Surf. The novel was originally published in 1978 and was later re-released in 1990 as The Stand: The Complete & Uncut Edition; King restored some text originally cut for brevity, added and revised sections, changed the setting of the story from 1985 to 1990, and updated a few pop culture references accordingly.
