The Stand

by Stephen King

Condition: Very Good/Very Good


UK First Edition, First Printing (New English Library 1979). First published in the US in the previous year. The first print run of this UK edition consisted of fewer than 1,000 copies, as opposed to the 70,000 printed in the US, making this edition very rare indeed. Foxing to top edge of text block with very light soiling to fore-edge. A few marks to front and rear boards. Binding is still nice, square and tight and there are no tears or inscriptions. Original dust jacket is price-clipped and has a few small nicks and tears to the top and a little rubbing to front and rear panels; spine panel laminate has lifted in places.

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.
