Munich: Privately Printed at the Bremer Press, 1923. 455pp, [1], original quarter cloth and boards with original paper label to spine. Spine slightly dulled, label browned, minor splits to joints at head of spine, minor chipping to foot of spine, covers slightly faded to edges, corners bumped. Internally bright and clean. Number one hundred and eight of one hundred and fifty-five copies, 'numbered and signed' according to the colophon, but I can see no evidence of it being signed (presumably as issued?).

Illus. by Lear, Edward. Folio. Limited Edition.
