My Pretty Pony ---by Stephen King ---a Signed, Limited Edition ( Aluminum Edition with Digital Clock with Custom Slipcase )
N.Y.: Whitney Museum of American Art, 1988, 1st Edition, 1st Printing - ----------hardcover, a Fine unread copy in a Near Fine/ Fine custom made clamshell slipcase (not issued with this production but strongly recommended by The Whitney Museum as a safe harbour for this unique piece), book is approx. 19 x 13 inches, a stunning production and missing from many KING collections, bound in aluminum with a red leather spine, digital clock mounted in the front aluminum panel (battery has run down but can be easily replaced), one of 280 copies, signed by KING and KRUGER, 100 copies were reserved for patrons of the museum, 150 copies were offered for sale, 30 Roman numeraled copies were reserved for family and friends, this is one of the 150 copies edition, when this tome was issued purchasers were given information about caring for the book with the recommendation (certainly a strong suggestion) that the buyer might want to have a custom case made for the book, the company BOOKLAB INC, was recommended for this, this copy DOES HAVE the custom clam-shell tray case designed and produced by BookLab Inc., the case is Near Fine/Fine and is a perfect holder for this massive, weighty book, this copy also has the original BookLab letter and order form for this traycase, that letter states: "A handsome drop-spine box was made to house (this) volume. The box is covered in two tones of grey, with grey tweed book cloth on the case and steel grey fabric on the walls. The title is stamped in silver on the red leather spine label. The interior is lined in steel gray (cloth), and the entire ensemble harmonizes with the book in color and style. ---", As well, a letter (and a catalogue for BL Inc) (both in a Whitney Museum envelope) is included on how to care for the book, including care for the aluminum covers and how to change the battery in the clock, this letter also states that the interleaving protective sheets between the illustrations and the text can be removed ---"in 1990 when the ink is fully dry"---, of course the lithographs were dry but the interleaves were only there for "just-in-case" protection to protect from any potential bleeding of inks, this copy has NOT had the interleaf protectors removed, so this copy is as issued, additional images are available, hard to imagine a nicer, more complete copy, (and finally, this is in the original shipping box for the traycase ---just a cardboard box with packing but it is what the traycase was shipped in when ordered ), any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
