Notes

Signed limited edition, number 424 of 500 numbered copies signed by both author and illustrator. "Publication of this book encountered delays and difficulties because of the outbreak of World War II. Since paper and workmen were fast being commandeered by the British government, the book was rushed into print despite the fact that only two Dulac illustrations were finished" (Hughey). Dulac designed the entire format of the volume, including chapter head and tail scroll designs.
