    I was given this as a gift and I am trying to find out a little about it so I know how good of care I need to take care of it.

    It is a "Black House" book by Stephen King and Peter Straub

    There was no Dust Jacket on the book and it was given to me wrapped in plastic (making me think the previous owner thought enough of it to keep it protected)

    I have searched the ISDN # and cannot find any pics of a book with this cover.

    I do not believe it is a leather bound book although it does have that feel. Even though the gold etchings are indented, it otherwise feels like a normal covered book.

    From what I can find on the info page it says Copyright 2001 by Stephen King and Peter Straub.

    It does say "A limited edition of this book has been published by Donald M Grant" which makes me believe this is not it.

    ISBN 0-375-50439-7

    Looks like published by Random House and on that page it says First Trade Edition.

    Also just noticed the last line says book design by Victoria Wong.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    ...it is a beauty, but I've never seen the like....there are much more learned souls on here than I when it comes to a book's provenance...

    It looks like it may have been part of a set which included The Talisman. Unfortunately, the link on the site doesn't go to that particular set but to the special edition Gun Slinger sets.

    Check it out....

    i was wrong... i found an alternate link and the gift set is for The Black and white set that i own in the case with signatures.

    the mystery continues.

    Brian, do you have an image of the title page... maybe with a Special Edition number on it...it would say
    something like: Copy 7 of 500

    Well...I feel silly b/c I thought it was called BLEAK House. I could swear I recall a book by that name and I thought he wrote it. I thought a different novelist wrote Black House..
