First edition, limited issue, number 344 of 550 copies on handmade paper, presentation copy inscribed on the half-title "Inscribed for Lucienne Gow by V. Sackville-West". The recipient was the first chairman of the Tenterden Trust, in current Ashford Borough, near Sissinghurst. Only the first 25 copies were issued signed, inscribed copies are rather uncommon.

Lucienne Gow was also an artist and painter, sometimes signing "Lugow", who frequented the London theatres in the 1950s and helped with set design and decors.
