Order Nr. 137832

First edition, of which this is one of 1399 copies thus labeled "The Ltd. Cork Ed.". This cork edition features a front flyleaf of heavy cork. Prospectus loosely inserted. Fine in fine slipcase. A beautiful book. Another fine contribution to the Gypsy Lou Series, whose fine points are laid out inside rear board. An astonishingly original and creative contribution to typography, literature, art history and design. Hans Reichel is the illustrator to whom Henry Miller directed his homage, under the direction of the publisher's editors, Jon Webb and Louise Webb ("loujon"). The rear panel says, "Written in 1937-38 in Paris, this book was penned without carbon & gifted as a long intimate book leter to the painters Hans Reichel who died 1958: now a Loujon Press 1524-copy limited first edition." Paper wraps are illustrated beautifully inside and out. Lace-like, stickle-backed paper over cardboard, then a tissue-protected sharp and distinct black-and-white photograph of Reichel inside front board, then a page of real cork board, then another preliminary page, then title page, copyright page, dedication, short pre-introduction page, the title page, and the Introduction by Lawrence Durrell--each is hand-made of different colored, hand-trimmed pages.
