About This Item

Los Angeles, Pig's Whisker Music, 1979, large format trade paperback (8.5" x 11"), 48 pp, First Edition, Very Good condition, Boldly signed and dated (1980 London) by both Robin and Janet Williamson on the title page and inscribed "to Gerald Green with every good wish". Straight, tight and clean with no markings, slight foxing to covers, slight corner bumps, slight warp. One of the founding members of The Incredible String Band and leader of The Merry Band, who set this piece to music on their album A Glint at the Kindling (1979), presents an epic poem "based on five broad stages of ancient British history" and the "emotion that the ancestral figures of the green islands have woken in me, since I first learned of them as a boy." Ten pages of the book are made up of the poem and its accompanying drawings while the following 31 pages contain the historical and literary notes and references that appear in the text. There are also two black-&-white photographs of the authors. A two-page Bibliography is appended. ISBN 9780960287406
