The Special Edition of twenty-six lettered copies which have, contained in a portfolio, signed proofs of each of the wood engravings printed by the artist on Japanese paper (Harrop, 118-19). Designed and printed by Nicolas McDowall on 175gsm Zerkall mould-made paper, from a special making, on a FAG Control 900 press. The text was set in Centaur, computer generated, and printed from polymer blocks, as were the second-color decorations. Maroon cloth spine with gilt spine titling and bright blue paper sides overprinted in gold to produce images derived from the frontispiece. Plum colored Bugra Butten endpapers, head tinted grey, fore-edge and tail uncut. Both volumes in a maroon cloth slipcase with recessed image printed black on white. The books were bound by The Fine Bindery. The frontispiece and fifteen wood engravings, as well as all images on the book, are by Harry Brockway, and the wood engravings were printed from the wood. Signed by the artist on the colophon.
