Original beige paper boards with title in black. Paper backstrip re-attached, but otherwise sound and clean except for normal hand soil to cover. First edition. "Six hundred copies printed on Van Gelder hand-made paper and the type distributed." - Quoted from rear endpaper. Distributing the type means removing type from the galleys, separating the individual letters, and replacing them in their storage trays. This is ample proof that the run ended with 600 copies, and that any re-setting of type would constitute a second edition. Untrimmed edges. 297 pp.
