THE MILLENNIUM TRILOGY Signed Deluxe Edition

By: Stieg Larsson

Price: £900.00

Quantity: 1 available


On offer is a complete set of the first printing of the UK deluxe edition Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson. These were published in 2010 by MacLehose Press as a complete slipcased set of cloth bound hardcovers together with an additional supplemental hardcover containing essays by those who knew and worked with the author, as well as other original material. There is also a folded poster containing the various cover designs for the series used throughout the world. This deluxe set is a beautifully collectible in it’s own right. However, what makes this particular set outstanding is that it is signed by Stieg Larsson’s partner Eva Gabrielsson on each of the three novels in this trilogy to the pre-title page. It was signed on June 8th 2012 At the Hay-on-Wye Literary Festival where Eva Gabrielsson appeared. In signing these volumes, she felt it appropriate to preface each signature with the inscription “For Stieg Larsson”. To my knowledge, these are the only copies of the trilogy signed by Eva Gabrielsson available anywhere. Arguably, her signature is the most important and relevant signature of any living person as she contributed to the research and development of these books on different levels whilst living with Stieg Larsson*. This set is in new fine unread condition. * FOOTNOTE: The Guardian, October 4th 2011 - There have been suggestions that Gabrielsson had a hand in the novels – that she was, at the very least, a co-writer. She both denies and clarifies this. "The actual writing, the craftsmanship, was Stieg's. But the content is a different matter. There are a lot of my thoughts, ideas and work in there." She says, for instance, that Larsson didn't have time to research all the locations for the book – he did, after all, write 2,000 pages in just two years. So he used information from her unfinished book about Hallman, "and we went out to double- and triple-check some places, to discuss where people would live and why – according to the story, their character, or financial status. So there's a large part of my knowledge, life and world in it, and large parts of his. Then there's this grey zone that's joint. That's why I think it would have been a good idea if I could have managed the literary legacy."
