I'm reading this and decided I wanted a brand new one for the shelf when done. Wasn't particularly looking for a 1st edition or cemetery dance edition, even though down the line looking to pick up a cemetery dance. For right now just wanted a nice unread hardcover. So I got the book and it was shrink wrapped. I opened it up and had a poster with it with a stephen king autograph that isn't live. The book itself wasn't white and blue like the other one. The copyright page is the same. Does anyone know what this is. I first thought it was a book club edition bc there was no price on the dust jacket, but I doubt any bc edition would come with a poster. Any help figuring what this is greatly appreciated.

...the one I received from the Stephen King Library also came with a poster...with a quick look around, the provenance of the poster is a bit murky to me...Scribner was the publisher, and I found where the poster was released in both book club editions and also first editions/first printings.....
