Published: [Newtown]: The Gregynog Press,

Limited edition, no. 75 of 250 copies printed on Japanese vellum, small folio, (60) pp. 41 wood engraved illustrations by Blair Hughes-Stanton, who also designed the title page and book as a whole. Original russet full hermitage calf, title and device in blind to the upper cover, some mild rubbing and sunning to edges and spine, a very good copy.

Harrop 24 - “The illustrations... show Blair Hughes-Stanton at the full height of his powers as a wood engraver. These engravings, in which the strange elongated figures exude a strange power and even menace, emphasise the artist’s complete technical mastery of the medium” (pp109-110).
