Order Nr. 136795

Limited to 300 numbered copies. (Harrop, Zilverdistel no.40). Frontispiece portrait of Shaw by John Farleigh. Head of spine worn, with some scattered wear to spine. General shelfwear. Boards somewhat bowed. As is common with this title there is offsetting from the leather turn-ins to the front and rear endpaper edges. Edges of preliminary pages show small tears, else the interior is in fine condition. With the bookplate of Robin Satinsky on the front pastedown. Printed in Baskerville type on very pale green hand-made Arnold and Foster paper. Zero fading to boards and spine, which is very common with this title. This book, which is one of the more striking Gregynog Press titles, caused much trouble to everyone involved in its production, mainly because of Shaw's tinkering interference.
