About This Item

First edition, first impression (Viking, 1986).

Quarter-bound in black cloth with red lettering to spine and 'SK' initials in red to upper board. Spine a bit concave, as is common due to the size of the book, mild rubbing here and there; contents and edges nice and clean and free from spotting, names and inscriptions. The original and unclipped dust jacket has just light traces of wear to extremities. A very good copy indeed.


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).
