Crawford, of the approximately 400 copies printed, about 200 copies were bound with the rest destroyed at a later date. Also according to the publisher, the printed dust jacket and errata slip were prepared after publication both of which are present with this copy. A few small areas of cloth slightly soiled, else a fine, bright copy with two crisp, bright dust jackets. This copy comes housed in an attractive black leather slipcase with gilt lettering on the banded-leather spine. A key title to any collection of fantasy, horror, and supernatural fiction.
