Book Description

The sole UK printing published by The Gehenna Press, UK in 1981. Number '120' of only 250 copies issued. The BOOK is in near Fine condition with just a tiny amount of rubbing and a very small split to the extreme spine tips. Free from inscriptions and erasures. 'The woodcuts were printed from the blocks ; the paper is Dover, handmade at Maidstone, Kent, these copies are signed by the poet and artist and are numbered one to two hundred and twenty five.'. Leonard Baskin has provided five full page B/W woodcuts, a further one hand coloured and a further half page bird decoration to the limitation page. The book is protected in a removable Mylar archival cover. Loosely inserted are the 4 page publisher's Prospectus with a B/W woodcut and also a a very scarce promotional letter from Mark Ritchie at The Phaidon Press promoting this title and informing collectors that they had taken over the ownership of The Gehenna Press. An increasingly elusive copy of one of the most handsome books that Hughes and Baskin worked on together.
