There were 353 limited copies of the first edition that were issued in a slipcase with a signed numbered page. These copies had bindings similar to the other first editions, but they had a special pocket in the back that held a signed and edited page from the original manuscript of Racing Through Paradise. The limited edition also had a book marker ribbon, and was issued in a slipcase rather than a dust jacket. The limited editions were part of the first edition printing, and as such they had the same copyright page as the other first editions, including the full random house number line and First Edition statement.
