“On the Road that I have taken, one day walking I awaken, amazed to see where I’ve come, where I’m going, where I’m from.”
― Dean Koontz, The Book Of Counted Sorrows
First limited edition, lettered state. Limited to 26 signed and lettered copies. This copy is lettered “Q.” Bound in full black Morocco (goat-skin leather), with an Art Deco geometric design in three colors of leather inlaid to the front and one color to back cover of the book. Housed in a silk and glass (publisher’s) traycase (not issued in dust jacket).
For many years the Book of Counted Sorrows was veiled under a shroud of mystery where many questioned its very existence. Their queries were well founded since Koontz quoted passages and referenced the collection of poetry long before its formal production. When it was finally released, readers were surprised to find an elaborately developed introduction rich in Koontz’ classic wit that explored the fictionalized history of the poetry contained in the book.
