The sole UK printing published by the Rampant Lions Press, UK in 1972. Number 'X' of only 15 copies from an edition of 125. Signed by both the author and illustrator on the limitation page. With an extra signed lithograph of an unused variant of the frontispiece to the rear. The BOOK is in near Fine condition. Original quarter morocco, gilt titling, cloth boards, marbled endpapers by Sangorski and Sutcliffe, and printed on hand-made Pachuco Cadava paper from Amalfi. Top edge gilt. Some light spotting to the cut page text-block but otherwise in lovely condition. Free from inscriptions. The attractive bookplate of bibliographer Ann Ridler to the front pastedown. A handsome production and increasingly elusive due to the small limitation of this special edition.
