Gorey, Edward (illus.)

Worcester, MA: Metacom Press, 1989. Tall, thin quarto, measuring 11 1/4 by 2 1/4 inches. (4)ff., (or 36, depending on how you count). First edition. One of 500 copies signed by Gorey. This unusual cut-figure book follows two characters, V and W, who resemble salt and pepper shakers and experience changeable fates. Each page is slit into nine sections, each of which, with its own illustration, can be opened independently of the others, thus creating the possibility of the 1,458 tales indicated by the title. This is a fine copy in original green wrappers. Item #27817

(Toledano A94a).
