LIMITED EDITIONS

Limited Editions are defined as having a limited number of copies printed. Copies are often hand-numbered (or lettered) and are usually signed by the author(s) on a Statement of Limitation page. The Limitation page should indicate the total number of copies printed in the edition and the number of the present copy in the sequence. Limited Editions are often, but not always, issued with a slipcase. It should also be noted that a Limited Edition may not be the true first edition. Easton Press editions are often printed after the true first editions. The attraction of Limited Editions, besides the superior bindings in leather or other exotic materials, is they're often printed with supplemental materials that weren't present in the trade editions: Original paintings (frontispiece and/or jackets), interior illustrations, extra ornamentation like gilt edges or comments by the author(s).

All Limited Edition books are hardcover first edition, first printings unless stated otherwise.

BONES OF ZORA [THE], De Camp, L. Sprague and Catherine De Camp
5 BONES OF ZORA [THE]
De Camp, L. Sprague and Catherine De Camp
Phantasia Press, 1983, 0932096271 / 9780932096272

First Edition, Hardcover, Fine, Fine. Book. Poyser, Victoria
Hardcover first edition and first trade edition. (Preceded by the signed and numbered Phantasia limited edition.) One of 2,000 trade copies. Not a book club, remainder or ex-library copy. Except for small amount of crinkling at top and bottom corners of the dustjacket, this copy is straight, unmarked and very fine (unread) condition in very fine dustjacket. Difficult to find Phantasia titles in very fine condition. The sixth book in De Camp's campy but very fun Krishna series. The series is both SF and Fantasy (starfarers marooned on a medieval world are exploited technically and sexually by the savvy natives), and de Camp took time in this series to poke fun at the SF/Fantasy stereotypes. We'll miss him. Phantasia Press was the premier specialty publisher for SF and Fantasy titles in the 1980's, and these finely crafted editions are very collectible, and theirs titles included Asimov's Robots of Dawn, Brin's Startide Rising, Ellison's Medea, and Gibson's Neuromancer. Excellent full color, wrap-around dustjacket illustration by Victoria Poyser.
