Notes

First edition, first printing, number 53 of 500 copies only, with a Gorey-illustrated publisher's bookmark loosely inserted. Each of the card features one of the illustrator's characters, apart from the first card (acting as title page) which displays three characters. Eight of the drawings (including the "title page" one) had appeared in the "Fall 1960" issue of the magazine First Person, which included contributions from Mark Twain and Ford Madox Ford among others.
