Median Market Value
This edition of The Road by Cormac McCarthy is limited to two hundred & seventy-six copies, and is presented in two states: Lettered and Limited. The edition measures 6¼” x 9¼” and features seven illustrations by Ryan Pancoast, as well as an exclusive introduction by award winning author, Joyce Carol Oates. Also included is a wood engraving by renowned engraver, Richard Wagener. The editions are signed by Joyce Carol Oates, Ryan Pancoast and Richard Wagener.
The Limited numbered edition is a quarter leather binding with Japanese cloth boards, and is limited to 250 copies. The leather spine is foil stamped, and the cover includes an inset print of the The Road engraving by Richard Wagener. Endsheets are Thai mango leaf, and the edition is printed offset on Mohawk Via Vellum Flax paper. It is housed in a cloth covered slipcase.
During 2020, Paul Suntup offered The Road Broadside to all customers who had previously pre-ordered any book from Suntup Editions. This was not limited to pre-orders of The Road so it is not a rare find. It does however command a premium when it is bundled with the Road Numbered edition. It's a plus to the Lettered edition but won't influence it's market value by much.
Only 3 pre-orders won a signed letterpress print of Richard Wagener's engraving. So finding this on the 2nd market is exceedingly rare.
