2005 - The Triumph of the Sun

Macmillan published the first British edition on March 28, 2005

St. Martin's Press published the first American edition May 2005

I own an Exclusive Limited Edition Proof copy

This is the first book that was issued in a Limited Signed Edition, numbered to 1000 copies with slipcase

Wilbur was 72 years of age when he signed the 1000 copies of this Limited Signed Edition, and he opted to sign his name in a very sloppy manner, which I had not seen before 2005

Below are examples of the signatures found in the slip-cased Limited Signed Editions

I own 1 signed copy of the first printing of the British first edition

Because of the sloppy, illegible signatures in the Limited Signed Edition, I prefer to own a signed copy of the regular first edition.

It is a near certainty that there are fewer than 1000 signed regular first editions in existence

I have owned and sold a copy of the Limited Edition Proof, as well as a signed regular first edition, and several of the Limited Edition slip-cased first editions

St. Martin's Press published its first edition May 2005

I own an exceedingly rare copy of Advance Uncorrected Proofs

I own 1 copy of the American first edition, and it is signed

Signed copies are rare; I have never seen another signed copy
