SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION OF THE EYES OF THE DRAGON, ONE OF 1000 COPIES SIGNED BY STEPHEN KING

KING, Stephen. The Eyes of the Dragon. Bangor, Maine: Philtrum Press, 1984. Folio, original half black cloth, original slipcase. $3500.

Signed limited first edition of this fantasy novel originally written for children, number 168 of 1000 copies (out of a total limited edition of 1250 copies) signed by King.

In this departure from his more characteristic horror fare, King "has used the full authority of his talent as a yarn spinner to create the atmosphere of a made-up bedtime story. The narrative address is that of a parent to a child… reminding us strongly of A.A. Milne… From the book's first words—'Once, in a kingdom called Delain'—we know that we must suspend our disbelief just as completely as if we were listening to a tale by Andersen or Grimm" (New York Times). "Well crafted and smoothly told" (Fantasy and Horror 7-209). With 19 detailed, black-and-white illustrations, several full-page, by Kenneth R. Linkhaüser. Precedes the first trade edition (1987). With a typed letter from the publisher laid in.

A fine signed copy.
