Mr. Rabbit Trick (interesting handle),
Wow, what a response. I had no idea at all. I also have no idea just yet which of these reissues of "The Shining" I am getting. It's in the mail and I paid $18 for it w/shpg, so I won't get too burned. It's HC with what appears to be an identical DJ to original and the book dealer/seller responded to questions that it is like new and extraordinarily true to the original version. That's all I can tell you until it arrives. My "collection", while nearly complete, is rife with non-1sts, even a few BCE's, and several paperbacks, and only a couple older, prized 1st/1sts...like "The Stand". I got lucky. I knew none of this. Thanks so much for the detailed information. I'm finding all this fascinating. It should arrive within a week or two and I'll try to let you know from your data which it is. Can you tell me where you get all this info? Sincerely, Roadster

Info from: stephen king bibliography by justin brooks

Image

Handle origin:
This is a series of five short stories about “Mr. Rabbit Trick” that King wrote for his mother when he was six years old. In On Writing, King stated: “I eventually wrote a story about four magic animals who rode around in an old car, helping out little kids. Their leader was a large white bunny named Mr. Rabbit Trick. He got to drive the car. The story was four pages long, laboriously printed in pencil.”
