Complete Conan of Cimmeria  Volume 2 (1934) #198/1950 Complete Conan of Cimmeria  Volume 2 (1934) #198/1950

This is the second book in a three volume set that covers all the Conan stories, textually restored and meticulously researched by Howard scholar Patrice Louinet, with 85 original line drawings and six stunning new, full color oil plates from award-winning artist Gary Gianni.

Conan was the blueprint for the entire sword and sorcery genre. Read the stories that started it all, as they were meant to be seen, only from the Wandering Star Robert E. Howard Library of Classics!

A Luxury edition · Full color paintings · Profusely illustrated with exquisite black and white line work throughout · Slipcased with embossed color plate · Dust jacket · Gilt edged · Embossed cover · Signed and numbered by award-winning artist GARY GIANNI. Again from the Robert E. Howard archives comes a wealth of never before seen material: contextual notes, synopses, plot outlines, initial drafts, original ideas, notes -- everything Conan's creator ever wrote about the greatest barbarian adventurer of all time!

Of special note are the never-before-published versions of 'People of the Black Circle' and 'A Witch Shall be Born.' The texts for these stories were taken from Howard's original carbon and typescript, respectively, and feature an UNCENSORED restoration of the story text before it was edited by the original publisher.

Over half of this book is taken Robert E. Howard's original drafts and typescripts -- a world debut! In addition, this volume contains Howard's only novel of Conan the Cimmerian, the stunning THE HOUR OF THE DRAGON. The unique material in this book once again unveils startling new insights about the Conan character and its development by one of the most creative literary minds of the 1930s, Robert E. Howard.

Conan of Cimmeria, Volume Two contains: · People of the Black Circle; · The Hour of the Dragon; · A Witch Shall be Born; Including (all from original typescripts): · synopsis for 'People of the Black Circle'; · 'the story thus far...' (notes on 'People of the Black Circle'); · rare untitled synopsis and draft; · synopsis for The Hour of the Dragon; · notes for The Hour of the Dragon; · synopsis for 'A Witch Shall Be Born'; · plus notes on the typescripts and Hyborian Genesis, part 2 by editor Patrice Louinet.

Limited Edition of 1950 copies, each signed and numbered by the artist, this book comes complete with gilt edging, gorgeous slipcase cover with embossed plate, dust jacket, full colour paintings, and hordes of astounding illustrations.

Book is in mint condition. Slipcase has small ding in top right corner.
