Limited to 200 numbered copies (Berger A54). Printed on Arches mouldmade paper and composed in Perpetua types by Golgonooza Letter Foundry with binding by Campbell-Logan. Covey created 25 woodcuts showing Chinese street peddlers specifically for this book. Morris printed the woodcuts directly from the wood and has tipped them in throughout the text. This beautifully produced book reminds us why Henry Morris and his Bird & Bull Press is considered one of the premier private presses in America. A separate woodcut in paper frame is loosely inserted. Prospectus loosely inserted. Housed in a later clamshell box.
