U.S. FIRST EDITION / FIRST PRINTING  HASTINGS HOUSE
Mega Rare first edition! *DAMAGED - See Description / Photos
Hardcover with dust jacket. Ex-library copy w/ stamps, water damage and a few torn pages. Dust jacket is beautiful and like new w/ small sticker on spine. Price clipped front panel.
Book itself is poor; boards are clean and binding is tight but tape-mark ghosting is visible on front and back. Interior pages have water damage; rippling to pages. Also at least two to three pages are torn [see photos]. Not a great reading copy but cool for collectors.
Seventeen years after the king of Katoren dies, a boy aspires to win the crown and is tested with seven impossible tasks by six Ministers.
