About This Item

The sole UK printing published by Brewhouse, Wymondham in 1970. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. One of only 30 copies produced which were for private distribution only and not for sale. Signed to the colophon by both Rigby Graham and Trevor Hickman as issued. Original morocco spine with gilt titling, green cloth boards with a linocut printed in black on the front. Free from inscriptions and erasures. Profusely illustrated throughout by Rigby Graham. Striking lithographed endpapers printed in two colours. 30 lithos : 29 printed in black and 1 in olive green. 10 lithos printed in one to three colours. The text is by Rigby Graham. Some offsetting from the coloured lithos but far less so than usually encountered due to the presence of some loosely laid in tissue guards. Two small brown marks confined to the blank outer top and fore edge of one page. A very handsome production from Trevor Hickman at Brewhouse, and one of Rigby Graham's scarcest titles. The book is protected in a loose Mylar archival cover. More images available on request. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
