copy numbers from correspondence with HC.


Thanks for that, Trotter. If anyone here gets a copy, it would be interesting to know who the printer is, and if it has a statement of reprinting.

As I suspected, the reprint of Tales from the Perilous Realm is printed in China and does not have a correct numberline. The numberline is "I".

I'm getting a bit sick of HarperCollins doing this with the Deluxe Range. It may not be deliberate dishonesty, but it completely goes against accepted convention, and it is a huge negative for collectors.

I have received from a friend collector some photos of this edition. The book reports that it's a first edition, but if you look carefully the logo on the book, this is different: only yellow instead that red and yellow.

Probably it's a reprint? What do you think?

Good eyes, I can confirm mine is gold only and I supplied the picture above with the "Printed and bound in China." The signed version with different ISBN has the red. So the question is whether the first printing of the unsigned also has the red and gold.

And of course the booksellers are using the stock footage showing the red and gold. But nothing is worse than roxy media using the super deluxe image to sell the deluxe.
