Lot #22: Pet Sematary Proof - Signed By Stephen King
New York City, NY: Doubleday & Company (1983). Pet Sematary by Stephen King. Octavo. Soft Cover. pp. 536. Uncorrected Proof.
Rare First State Typescript Proof. Less Than 50 Copies Produced. Warmly Inscribed To David Morrell And Family By Stephen King Before Publication.
Book Condition: Very Good in illustrated wrappers by Linda Fennimore.
Pet Sematary has always been a fan favorite of Stephen King's novel's since 1983 when Mr. King said in an interview that it was the one novel he was actually afraid to finish. With the upcoming remake due in 2019, interest in this novel will never die. The First State proof was produced in very low numbers as it was determined that a photocopy of the typescript was not the preferred way to read it, prompting Doubleday to completely typeset the proof and produce a Second State. Fewer than 50 copies were believed to be printed of this state. Having a signed association copy is extremely rare, and the first I have ever seen.
[ NOTE: In this state of the proof, "Doubleday & Company" is misspelled as "Doubleday & Compnay". That was fixed in the Second State proof.
