Deluxe Limited Edition of 300
- The dust jacket carries the same ISBN as the Standard Edition, but a small sticker on the rear inside flap distinguishes the Deluxe Edition ($360 price tag vs. $285 for the Standard Edition);
- The Deluxe Edition cover is brown (leather?);
- Most notably, the Deluxe Edition is signed by author Albert Field on the front title page.
Joseph A.V. Kealapua Melillo, 58, of Honolulu, a chef and entrepreneur, will be remembered in services 11 a.m. Saturday at Borthwick Mortuary. He died in Kaiser Medical Center. He was born in Summit, N.J. He is survived by companion Patrick Kelly Lagon, brother Fred and sister Barbara.
It is not clear whether all Deluxe Editions have a personal inscription, but it is likely that they are all signed by Albert Field.
The Deluxe Edition is the rarest version of this already rare book and is likely worth a bit more than the Standard Edition. I have never seen another available, and I would estimate the value at more than $400.
