A Near Fine SIGNED copy. Published by Doubleday. NO date shown, but most sources seem to think this was published in 1990 - this copy being a later impression with '18 19 17' as the publisher's key at the foot of the publishing detail page, indicating the impression. Dedicated, SIGNED and DATED by Stephen King on the Half Title page. "To Peter, Best wishes, , , and shine on! Stephen King 1/13/97". Quarter bound with a black cloth spine and light black paper-covered boards. Bright Metallic Red lettering to the spine and on the Facsimile 'Stephen King Signature' on the front board. A slight 'turning', as usual, to the head/tail of the spine from storage, but overall Near Fine/Fine covers. In the original publisher's fine pictorial dustjacket, now in a protective clear - removable - bookfilm plastic cover, and looks As New. Not price-clipped. Clean page fore-edges with the slightest of shelfwear flecks, though the page block segments/gathers look VERY slightly different shades, which is possible if slightly different paper used when printing - overall negligible. Internally excellent, No other inscriptions or marks. (12) + 450 pp. Originally published in 1977- the book was adapted as a film in 1980 starring Jack Nicholson and Produced and Directed by Stanley Kubrick - now a Cult Classic, though the film differs from the novel significantly with regard to characterization and motivation of action. The most obvious differences are those regarding the personality of Jack Torrance. Stephen King himself supervised the 1997 television adaptation also entitled 'The Shining'.
