8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. [xiii], 108p. A very good copy, the spine ends are somewhat bumped and the spine is slightly faded and the corners of the covers are slightly bumped. An unusual copy. A large paper edition which is no. 36 of 50. Instead of signing the book on the limitation page, the author has written a page and a half signed inscription on both sides of the front free endpaper. As to the cloth on the covers they may be marbled, but rather look to me almost like they have been tye-dyed. At any rate they are pinkish, red and perhaps very light green, all combined in a very wispy way and quite beautiful.
