Boxed limited edition set of 1,500, this being copy #151. The Ultimate Triumph brings together classic American author Robert E. Howard, universally acknowledged master of the adventure tale, with Frank Frazetta, the master of fantasy art. Collected in this volume are seven stories and five poems which represent some of the best of Howard's work featuring barbarians. Also included is a forward by Frank Frazetta; an essay from the noted French scholar, Patrice Louinet; a section with excepts from Howard's letters to H.P. Lovecraft in which he discusses "barbarism vs. civilization;" and... a complete set of textual notes, creating a record of any deviations from the meticulously restored and unexpurgated text. The book includes unpublished text by Howard and never before published art and illustrations by Frazetta. This is the Collector's Edition -- featuring all black and white illustrations found in the trade edition, plus four previously unpublished color water-color plates, gilt-edged paper, an embossed slipcase cover, and a numbered book mark.
