Northampton, MA: Gehenna Press, 1963. Elephant folio. (24)pp. One of 150 copies, signed by the illustrator, Rico Lebrun, and by the engraver, Leonard Baskin, below the colophon and on the prints.

Mild abrasions to portfolio, else a fine testament to American authorship and artistry. Prospectus laid in. Item #31044
