    I believe those are from the limited Overlook Connection/Chadbourne remarque collection. You can get a better look on the Overlook site if that helps.

    Sure, here is the providence letter for the Carrie remarque. I 've also included a picture of the actual remarque in the book as well as the Chadbourne internal seal with the limited no. written in the eyes.
    As Merlin correctly states these are from the limited Overlook Connection/Chadbourne collection. PM me if you are interested in them, I am willing to give members a great deal on these (substantially less than you would pay to start the collection from scratch AND you get no 3!)

    UPDATE - These have now been Sold!

    I think Carrie's mom finally got the point.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    Beautiful work. I appreciate the offer, but I tend to try to get remarques from the artist who has done the illustration on each particular book. These are quite interesting. Thanks as well Merlin. I had not really kept in touch with Overlook, though I did get many books from them in my early collecting years. I had not seen these.

    Just had some photos sent for my recent purchases currently being stored in my US offices...

    1st Up The Shining 1st/1st - not mint by any stretch but still pretty reasonable. The cover has the expected nicks and bumps but the book is pretty clean and tight.

    Only a 1st/2nd I'm afraid - it'll do for now.

    UPDATE: I now have a 1st/1st - This 1st/2nd is available for Trade or purchase - PM me if interested

    and finally (for now - more stuff is on the way) here's a really nice book that may be familiar to one or two members here...

    New addition to the collection! I had resolved NOT to include Paperbacks in my definition of 1st Editions but I have had a change of mind. At least I have started with the most difficult one to obtain!!

    Christmas came early! 2 new arrivals...

    No 1 is a 1st/1st Talisman, not particularly difficult to obtain, but this one is very clean and as a bonus is flat signed by Straub. (Replaces my 1st/3rd printing)

    No 2 is a gift edition Dr Sleep. This will be the one Vinny remarques methinks
    Thanks to PS publishing for this one, saved me a heap on postage!

    Nice additions Stroppy - I take it you're going to send the G/E Doctor Sleep off to Vincent for remarquing independent of the CD offering (well thought out if so, as you'll definitely get a bit more variation than the three takes done for the CD insert pieces)
