Philtrum Press
Publication Year:
Numbered 1/1,000
Issue Price:
26 red lettered, 26 black lettered, less than 10 Artist's copies, 250 red-numbered issued to friends, and 1,000 black-numbered copies produced.

Like Cycle of the Werewolf, and The Plant, The Eyes of the Dragon (original title:The Napkins) was published without a trade edition in the works at the time. The trade edition of Eyes of the Dragon has important textual differences. Sold by lottery only (at least 3 were conducted), in three ads that ran in F/SF magazines, 1,000 black numbered-editions were sold in order that 250 red-numbered copies could be given as gifts to people on King's Christmas greeting list.
A visual and tactile sensation, the book stands over 13" (33 CM) tall. The paper was intended to feel like fine linen (The Napkins).
