Nice looking illustration, can't wait to see more of them up close and personal. Is the leather the same as the original dark brown, or lighter as in the pics? I assume the flash washed the color out.
Did you get copy #1? :)
The pics certainly don't do justice to the book, however they are still FAR better than any pics on the EP website (sad but true)! The leather is dark brown. My copy was #451 of course ;)
Your copy is 451, but when i look in your pictures it says that this set is strictly limited to 400.
Can't find this one on the Easton Press website. Got a link?
6- It's not on site yet. You will have to call or email to order.
#2630 Dante Alighieri The Divine Comedy: /400, 4@$99.00 ($396.00)
Interesting, the flyer they sent me stated 800 sets, astropis' copy states 400 copies. I haven't seen that happen before.
The 800 copy 'Limited Edition' is a re-print of the 400 copy 'Limited Edition'. It is more rare than the upcoming 1600 copy 'Limited Edition' re-print of the 800 copy 'Limited Edition'. =)
I think I will then wait for the 100 copy LE, or perhaps even the 50 copy.
10> Damn. Working backward, does that mean means that I missed out on the über-rare single-copy Limited Edition?
I can trump that! I actually happen to have in my possession the edition that was limited to zero copies. It is copy #0. Oddly enough, it was rather inexpensive.
Shhh! -- you can collect any or all of these editions, but you can't safely talk about them without risking a metaphysical paradox that could ultimately destroy the entire universe (or, even worse, drive up reseller prices).
That said, I think I have one of those zero-copy editions sitting around here somewhere, if I could only remember where I put it...
So its not just dividing by zero that'll destroy the entire universe?! Wow, we live in dangerous times........
EP put up a page today when updating the site.
Actually, zero copies editions are numerous! Just a few months ago the Dutch writer Gummbah (not his real name) wrote a book Net niet verschenen boeken about 100 books that had 0 copies. It's very funny.
An interview with Gummbah is on YouTube:
Even if you don't understand a word of it you'll be thrilled by the covers of books like "vagina's you must see" or "Jacques looked pretty nice but he wasn't".
This reminds me of one of my favorite Charles Chesnutt short stories...
>4 Virion: & 8 et seq.
I just got the "Early Spring 2011" catalog (never received the flyer that I can recall) and it states 400 sets for the Dante (on page 3). -Soooooo, is it 400 or 800? Around 500 copies or less is the tipping point for me so far as LE's are concerned, so if this is actually 400 I'll think about it. (Looks worth the $$$ anyway for the engravings and overall design.) Can anyone throw more light on the numbers?
I noticed that Latin abbreviation I threw in at the top turned into a hot link, which really wasn't my intention, sorry :-/
I would say it is 400, considering that is what is printed in the book, and the most recent advertisement. The 800 number was listed on pre production information.
