Worthy Mention:

“Route 6 Mocksville” was unique in that Bob (who is well known for his attention to detail) left out the chains on the porch swing. This mistake was discovered by the owners of the original during an exhibit in New York City at Hammer Galleries. When Bob asked the owners to let him correct it, they said they preferred to leave it the way it was…. they liked the uniqueness of it.

There were 300 of each of the above 10 equaling a total of 3000 signed and numbered prints.

The DELUXE EDITION was in a larger box with edges trimmed in gold and contains one each of the ten prints listed.It is signed by both Bob and Charles Kuralt and is numbered 1-125, accompanied with a gold engraved plate stating the number of the edition.

A problem arose due to there were only 3000 S/N prints!1250 or 1 each of the 10 for the DELUXE EDITION.

That left a short fall of 225 prints since boxes 126-2100 would contain 1 print.*** This is where SAW WHET OWL IN CEDAR came into play as well as the print GLENCOE

The majority of most box sets floating around do not include the signed and numbered prints.Over the years, box set owners have removed the print and framed which has caused many to be left incomplete.It is a rare to find a complete set as the release was done 46 years ago.
