About This Item

Tafelberg, 1983. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. signed. Signed by Author(s)A unique copy of this rare book. Claerhout has signed the book on the half-title page and hand-drawn a woman in black ink. Further, tipped in opposite "Catcher of the Sun", plate 29, the author has handwritten a poem thus: "Joy I will find, I'll catch the sun, I'll yawn at moonlight - the night will pass, I'll spit the vulture from my throat, Africa is more than blossoms and birds, Vultures and lions, Man needs the sun, warmth. I will be your sun, I no longer fear death. - F. Claerhout". The jacket is shelf-worn and there are a couple of small closed tears. Still presents well in cellophane. The book has no other inscriptions. The binding is excellent.. Our orders are shipped using tracked courier delivery services.
