Median Market Value
The limited edition of The Magus by John Fowles is presented in three states: Artist, Numbered and Lettered. The editions measure 6” x 9” and feature six full color illustrations by Marc Burckhardt as well as a new introduction by Christopher Priest, and a new afterword by Eileen Warburton. The editions also include the author’s foreword from the 1977 revised edition, a bonus essay written by the author in 1994, and a transcript from the author’s October 23, 1977 appearance on the BBC television show, The Lively Arts.
The Artist edition is limited to 750 copies, and is the only edition to include a dust jacket illustrated by Marc Burckhardt. The jacket is double-sided, featuring the first edition dust jacket illustration by Tom Adams on the reverse.
It is a smyth-sewn, quarter cloth binding with Eurpoean bookcloth covering the spine, and Cot-Linen cloth over the boards. This design was inspired by the first U.K. edition binding of the novel. The edition is housed in a slipcase covered in Cot-Linen and is printed offset on archival Cougar Natural. This edition is signed by Marc Burckhardt.
