    So $2900 is highest bid and the reserve price not met.

    I don't think that King himself had this book bound. He simply signed a copy that some fan had already created from the text of the story, then had bound. Perhaps the person sent a copy to King, who then signed it, and gave it to the Whelans. Hard to say, but given how King had books bound through his self created Philtrum Press, there is no way (IMHO) King bound this book.


    Thus, the book is worth maybe $1K.

    Hard to argue with that. Seems most likely scenario.

    100% agree. I retracted my bid and after hearing its history I bid MUCH lower. AND am happy to not have it. I concur this is under a $1000. Basically a signed rebound with a backstory.

    Interesting that you, who has never seen this, decided how it was made, by whom, and what it is worth. Respectfully, you seem to be making up a story based on your thoughts, not on reality. The booklet is a copy of the Manuscript, NOT the article in the newsletter (I had the newsletter, it looked nothing like the manuscript). If you have ever seen a POLE manuscript please let me know. I have not, and I searched for 20 years. Who knows if King had it bound or did it himself. I suspect he (or someone who worked with/for him) dressed it up after it was bound, but I HAVE NO PROOF of who did it. Except I am certain there are no others like this based on my research. Other copies of the manuscript?? Perhaps.... show me one.

    The book is in near fine condition except the paper bag type material that covers some of the front and back boards has dried glue that seeped thru over the years. It was like this when Audrey sent it to me. I am very certain of everything I stated. If you saw the pages you would know this is the manuscript and not the newsletter. Ask David, he has never seen another either.

    I have nothing more to add and will refrain from further comment, except to say that the item is no longer mine.
    Cheers,
    Rand

    Hi Rand, please don't see my comment as an attack, I'm merely passing along information: this was discussed in a King FB group and Bob (carlosdetweiler) mentioned that he also has a Politics manuscript printout (unbound), Terry also has one and shared a picture. And there is also a printout of the essay in King's archive.

    Again: I'm not making a judgment, but I am very interested in the provenance of this essay.

    best wishes,
    Vincent

    I do not believe he did either but again... do not take the views here as a personal attack.

    + 1 (or, if you count my other 2 posts asking the same question: +3!) I get that this thread is a discussion about the particular bound item of note, but- I find the seeming lack of interest around here in reading this Uber-elusive article itself very curious. Especially considering it's subject matter- and where we all currently are. It's King's thoughts on Limited Editions of his work! And, as far as I know- most of us have never been able to read it. Would anyone who happens to have the Castle Rock(s)- (wasn't it serialized over 2 issues, if memory serves?) be willing to share the article somehow? What would be the legal and moral ethics of that as well? I'm very interested in all of these questions! I've been wanting to read that article for 30 years!

    I meant King's physical manuscript archive. The archive for a very long time was held at the University of Maine in Orono, at the Fogler library. In their catalogue it was in box 2702 folder 12. Now the entire archive is back with the King family.

    King wrote the essay on his Wang computer, that's why I call it a printout.

    Are you in the SK Rare Editions group on FB? Someone there posted photos of the entire essay from the two issues of Castle Rock. If you like, I'd be glad to help you further via PM so that you can read the text, it's a good read.

    Wasn't this article reprinted at some point? I'd swear I've read it in some book or maybe a magazine.
