On one of the two copies the limitation page also has a note in Lloyd Arthur Eshbach's hand, which reads, "For A. E. van Vogt -- As an expression of our appreciation for his fine work as a writer, and our thanks for his cooperation with Fantasy Press." [Signed by] L.A. Eshbach / A.J. Donnell / G.H. MacGregor / L.H. Houck. Fantasy Press always did two "presentation copies" bound in leather. One for the author and one for Lloyd Arthur Eshbach, the publisher.

It's not known if Fantasy created this pair of leather bound editions for every single one of their publications.
