Just so there are no more misunderstandings, this is the 2010 reprinted edition, not the original copy pictured. It doesn't contain the portraits of all the targareyan kings as stated in other reviews. Amazon need to sort out their advertising. Book is still good, but would have been better if these portraits hadn't been removed for the new edition. By the way, they aren't in the new second volume either. Could have been better, four stars instead of five.
