Signed limited edition, number 115 of 150 copies signed by the author and with his original painting on the front cover. As stated by Patchen on the rear pastedown “no two covers [are] alike” and the painting by the experimental poet and painter on this copy is exceptionally lavish and a true work of art.

Octavo. Original cloth-backed binder’s boards with original painting by the author on the front cover. Illustrations in the text. Contemporary book label to front free endpaper, gift inscription on blank leaf at rear. Boards slightly rubbed, remains of taped acetate jacket to fore edges of pastedowns, tape shadow to outer edges of free endpapers, contents faintly foxed. A very good copy.
