Inscribed by both editors and Jolas’s wife Marie to Harriet and Perry Culley on the front free endpaper. “To Harriet & Perry Culley, shining members of that younger generation who eventually ‘Transition’. Good luck! Paris 1948, Marie Jolas.” “To Harriet & Perry Culley with greetings from their friend Gene Jolas.” “To my good friends, Harriet & Perry Culley with best wishes always, Robert Sage.
