Carlisle, Ontario: The Brandstead Press, 1969. Octavo, 25.3 x 16.9 cm. Cased in half ochre silk and ochre mulberry paper over boards. The covering paper is decorated with a delicate foliate pattern. Self-ends. pp. 7-27 [the pagination for pages 11 and 18 is misprinted; an erratum slip tipped to the first rear blank records the error]. The pagination excludes integral blank leaves, 6 of which are interleaved sheets of handmade vegetable paper [ll. 25 total; including integral blanks]. The leaf bearing pp. 7-8 is slightly rubbed and puckered along the gutters, owing, likely, to a minor mishap during the process of collating, sewing, or binding. There is occasional puckering or very slight creasing, along with occasional and very mild spots of foxing, to the pages, mostly along the outer margins. The sewing is a little loose in places. A near fine copy. The text was set in Della Robbia type and printed on Oxford Book paper. The text is embellished with 20 wood engravings by Gerard Brender à Brandis. Three of the engravings, one for each of the three sections of text, are full page. All of the engravings were printed from the blocks. The variant binding in which this copy is housed was done by Marlene Pomeroy. From an edition of 150 copies. This copy is an artist’s proof (marked ‘A.P.’ in ink on the limitation page). Item #330
