Quantity: 1 available
Condition: Fine copies bound in quarter-leather as issued without dustjackets, each volume in a fine slipcase (one slipcase has a faint stain at one bottom edge, but this does not extend to either the inside of the slipcase or the book itself).
Five volumes: BEYOND LIES THE WUB, SECOND VARIETY, THE FATHER-THING, THE DAYS OF PERKY PAT and THE LITTLE BLACK BOX: withy an introduction to each volume by Roger Zelazny, Norman Spinrad, John Brunner, James Tiptree, Jr., and Thomas M. Disch respectively. ULTRA-LIMITED EDITION OF JUST TWO SETS: ''Publisher's Copy 2/2'' stated on limitation page, underneath the cancelled cheque stub with the signature of Philip K. Dick. All five volumes have this statement present, and all five have a cancelled cheque stub signed by Dick affixed : all five are bound in quarter-leather and all five slipcased separately. Just two sets were issued thus. The ''regular'' limited edition from Underwood-Miller consisted of 500 numbered slipcased sets (ie. all five volumes in one slipcase) of which the first hundred had the author's cheque stub signature tipped-in to the first volume only. It seems Chuck Miller had a few Dick signatures left over after this, and so bound up these two extra sets for himself and one other person. He did the same for some of the Jack Vance titles he published, not part of the ''normal'' print-runs but just a few extra ultra-deluxe copies for himself and (paying) friends. Essentially a unique Philip K. Dick item.
