Synopsis from publisher:
This final volume includes behind-the-scenes extras plus issues #57-75 and a story from VERTIGO JAM #1. Don’t miss the end of what Playboy called “a modern myth, as well as a précis on why the stories we tell matter so much“.

Notes:
This over-sized hard cover publication is the fourth and final in this series, reprinting the next seventeen issues of the second Sandman comic book series. It is essentially a recolored or “remastered” version of the contents of The Sandman Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones and The Sandman Vol. 10: The Wake, but without those publications’ introductions.
All material reprinted in this publication was written by Neil Gaiman. Art was created by Marc Hempel for issues #57 to #61, #63 and #65 to 69. Inked art was provided by D’Israeli for issues #58 to #61 and Richard Case for issues #65 to #68. Issue #62 was drawn by Glyn Dillon, Dean Ormston, Charles Vess and D’Israeli. Teddy Kristiansen illustrated issue #64. Michael Zulli illustrated issues #70 to 73, as well as the 3-page sequence originally published in The Dreaming #8. The art for issue #74 was by Jon J. Muth and #75 by Charles Vess. The story from Vertigo Jam #1 was illustrated by Kevin Nowlan. The slipcase cover was created by Dave McKean.
This publication also includes 3 “lost” pages that were first printed in The Dreaming #8. The sequence takes place after page 16 of Sandman #72 but is printed in the correct sequence in this publication.
