The King in Yellow

If anyone feels like buying me this "true first edition" of The King in Yellow please do.

This is an apparent review copy, with an inked inscription on the title page: "To The Editor of The Western Stationer with the regards of the publisher / 19 July 1895."

The text on page 126 (in "The Yellow Sign") appears to be in its earliest form, with line 13 reading "her spirit fled to God" and line 16 reading "there was only Christ to cry to now." (In all of our later copies of The King in Yellow, the text has been revised.)

This Magickal Childe edition of The Voudon Gnostic Workbook by Michael Bertiaux would also look great on the shelf next to my other Magickal Childe editions.
