As well as the standard edition, there is also a special limited edition, lettered A to Z and signed by the author on the colophon. It comes with a draft copy of the cover of issue 2 with handwritten suggestions on its layout by Dana Gioia, the book’s dedicatee, tipped in. Originally meant to be included in the standard edition, it was omitted for reasons of space. This special edition costs £25.00.
Copies A to G of these special editions also include, tipped in, a facsimile offcut of Gerry Cambridge’s new long poem, ‘The Visitor’, signed by the author, which appears in the summer 2016 issue of New York literary journal The Hudson Review—one of the early influences on The Dark Horse. These copies, if still available, cost £35.00 each.
