Owner's Description

A real treasure of a book - and my deepest sorrow regarding books in the year of 2011, when I too late saw that this book had been sold on Heritage Auction Galleries (HA). Currently there are only two books at 9.8 and none better - and this book has near-perfect cover centering and orientation together with pure white pages. Also it is a very beautiful 9.8 book with no visible signs of damage - unlike this book, I have a few 9.8 books showing signs of damage that is very easy to see.

I saw this book one week after it was sold at HA - at that time I had not set up any automatic search programs at HA, but I sure learned my lesson in 2011.
I guess it was pure luck the seller decided to sell the book on EBay 6 months later. So a great sorrow was changed into great joy, when this beauty joined my collection.

Furthermore this book contains the first appearance of the character Mockingbird, and was the last Ka-Zar story to be drawn by Barry Windsor-Smith. So this book concludes my small collection of Astonishing Tales.
