Printed on Linweave hand-made paper. Printed on a Chandler and Price platen press, manually operated. Loosely inserted is an A.L.S. from Abbe dated 1996 in which she talks about this book and even enclosed a marbled paper sample to show the color of the binding and a sample page of the text with an illustration.
