The Stake UK Proof

£ 95.00

Richard Laymon. The Stake. Headline 1990. First Edition. Original Wraps. Galley/Proof. Fine. This an uncorrected proof of the UK First Hard Cover Edition of this title. Appears to be an unread copy with a flat spine. No reading creases however there is some binding creasing at the head. Very sharp deep red paper covers with black print. Front cover a little creased near the spine hinge (another binding / gluing error I think). Internally clean though as is often the case with these proofs the ink used was very heavy so there is some ghosting evident. Extraordinarily scarce and in all my years of collecting Richard Laymon I have never handled another! A lovely collectible for the serious fan! REFC689
