First Pogany edition, signed limited issue, number 7 of 25 copies signed by the artist and printed on japon (a further 500 signed copies were issued on paper, alongside a trade issue; this is thus the most desirable and scarcest issue). Featuring intricately decorated borders and text printed in manuscript style, this edition of Coleridge's masterpiece is perhaps Pogany's best work, "considered by many to be among the most beautiful books ever produced" (Jeff Menges).
