Stephen King, Firestarter

Viking, 1980. Hardcover. 8vo. First edition (unless you count the Phantasia Press limited edition thing that came earlier, in which case we'll say it's the first trade edition). First printing. Very good condition. Some general smudgery along textblock edges (unavoidable, most likely, for a page-flipper such as this) and bumping to board forecorners. Dust jacket is likewise very good. Faint toning gradient along upper front edge (only 2mm or so--see photo), some rubbing at the head of the spine. This is a much better book than Cujo or Dead Zone but probably not as good as The Stand.

The book was wrapped carefully for shipping and in good condition with a clear plastic protective cover. I was really pleased I was able to replace and complete my collection as someone had borrowed and misplaced my copy.
