[A Song of Ice and Fire:]
A Game of Thrones; A Clash of Kings; A Storm of Swords; A Feast For Crows; A Dance of Dragons.Atlanta, GA/Burton, MI: Meisha Merlin/Subterranean, 2000-2015 Stock Code: 137883
The rarest and best limitationDeluxe signed limited edition, set "K" of the rare deluxe issue of only 52 lettered sets, each title signed by the author and illustrators, and additionally remarqued (a small original illustration added by hand) by the respective illustrators on the limitation leaf, the first five works of the Song of Ice and Fire cycle. There were also 500 numbered sets produced which were simply signed. A great deal of extra introductory, illustrative, and appendix material is represented in this limited edition, not available in the original trade editions.
The first two titles were originally issued in this deluxe format by Meisha Merlin (as here), but when they went bankrupt Subterranean took over the rights to publish this deluxe series from A Storm of Swords onwards. Meisha Merlin were reportedly very lax at ensuring the correct owners had the right of purchase transferred for the subsequent instalments, meaning that there were many "broken" sets. This caused Subterranean to latterly produce their own limited versions of the first and second titles, in order to supply their customers with a complete lettered or numbered run. The result is that unbroken sets, with the same lettering and with the first two titles represented in their original Meisha Merlin versions, are rare indeed.
5 works in 8 volumes, octavos. Original cloth with the dust jackets and original slipcases.
Illustrated endpapers, plates and maps (many colour and folding).
A fine set, all bright and square, in the fine dust jackets, not price-clipped. In the slipcases, small mark to rear of Storm of Swords slipcase.
