Quantity: 1 available


From a total printing of 1500 numbered paperbound copies, this is one of only approximately fifty copies which were specially hardbound (black cloth and spine lettered in gold): this copy is in the variant (later) yellow dustjacket. Note: ''Shroud probably bound cloth copies and distributed both cloth and wrappered states out of numerical sequence and thus copy numbers do not reflect sequence of issue. Hardbound copies numbered 51, 285, 623, 643 and 644 have been reported or observed'' (L. W. Currey, SF & Fantasy Authors: A Bibliography Of First Printings Of Their Fiction, pp. 322). This copy is no. 52 with the ''This is one of 50 Specially Bound Copies'' limitation statement affixed at the rear (p. 109) signed by publisher Kenneth J. Krueger in red ink.
