Forward by Stephen King
The Book is bound in full black Oasis Morocco (Goat skin) with a gold-stamped design of the white rabbit (with Ellison's face) from Alice In Wonderland on the front cover.
The book is contained in a Grimoire box which is cast in a synthetic resin called Uncast Three and made from original linden wood carvings by Steve Kirk. It was then hand-finished with intentional irregularities in surface and finish to produce a stressed antique appearance.
The carvings on the box are meant to represent scenes from the stories in the book.
The box is lined in black Siloma quilted velvet with antiqued brass fittings, lock and hasp.
Originally, two keys were meant to accompany the box; however, keys are not included for this item.
The box is signed by both the author and the sculptor via an affixed brass plate inside the box's lid and measures approximately 7-1/2 by 11 inches.
There was no dust jacket issued for this item.
Lettered limited to 40 copies of which we are currently selling letter M pictured above and more fully described below:
PLEASE NOTE: The book appears unread, the carvings on the box are exquisite BUT as pictured in the last two pictures the sides have bowed out so all four corners have separated a little (hence the price that is 25% lower than any other copy we can find for sale!). In addtion as shown someone put felt bumpers on the back to protect the box, they are gone but their residue remains.
