The colophon states the print run was limited to 2,000 copies, but rumor has it that far fewer ever made it into the public's hands. Most copies known to exist are signed and inscribed to Kilmer's friends, associates, and family and are thought to number less than 100; depending on who you ask, the remaining copies were either never printed or are kept in a box in Kilmer's garage.
This particular copy is unusual in that it bears only Kilmer's autograph without inscription on the title page. The wraps have some shelfwear and a small thumbing crease to cover; the corners are minimally bumped. The interior pages are bright and unmarked, save for the signature and a price penciled on the title page by a former bookseller. Highly sought after by collectors, the books have fetched upward of $1200 on eBay. Swamp Rabbit Books is offering our copy for sale at $464.99 with shipping included if you pay below through PayPal.
