Wizard’s First Rule by Terry Goodkind. Tor Books, 1994. Quarto hardback in full black paper boards. First edition identified by the standard Tor number line ending in ‘1.’

Goodkind’s first book is becoming a movie and its collectible value has skyrocketed in recent years. The book is well constructed even if no cloth was used on the spine. There are two signatures visible on the title page, the one simply simply ‘Terry’ is the one he said is the standard one he uses for signing books, while the full signature of Terry Goodkind is his normal signature that he rarely uses in books. He was impressed that I had a pristine copy of Wizard’s First Rule.
