Many King Items for Sale (Firsts, LE, Collections, Magazines...)

I am selling many items from my King collection – I have loved and cared for them for decades, but we are about to make a lot of changes in our life and so I think it is time to let go. I am not a book dealer, but a dedicated King collector, and so my ratings are correct to the best of my knowledge but are not to be considered an expert opinion. In general, the shipping costs are paid by the buyer (although I am likely to assist with shipping costs if multiple items are bought).

I have a more detailed list with photos of each items included and will be glad to email it to anyone who is interested. I am also happy to send any serious buyer additional photographs of any item.
