LIMITED EDITION (LTD ED)
An edition produced in a stated number of copies, typically a small number. Such books may state only the total number of copies, such as 500, or may state the individual number of the copy and the total number of copies, such as 49/500. A limited edition series that is reserved for special binding or a special purpose may be lettered, such as E/50. A copy from an individually numbered edition is said to be out of series or out of sequence if it lacks an individual copy number. Limited editions often describe the size and edition details on a Colophon or Limitation Page.
