With a new introduction by the author especially written for this edition, on the fiftieth anniversary of its first publication.

Hoyem's notes on the ship follow Vidal's introduction. The text is letterpress printed on German mouldmade paper. The photographs are reproduced by offset lithography and tipped onto the pages. The binding is full dark blue cloth with gray blue-green endpapers and title label. The dust jacket is made of a heavier version of the same paper, and is trimmed in the dark blue binding cloth. The dust jacket reprints the original reviews printed on the jacket of the first edition. The fifty-first book of the Arion Press. Well preserved copy.
