This Lettered edition is limited to 26 copies and is hand sewn with linen thread, rounded and backed and made on a hollow before being full bound in J. Hewit & Sons yellow Pentland goatskin with black embossed leather onlays in terracotta and leaf green. Onlays have been pared before covering, and are designed to match the style of the wood engravings.

Housed in a clamshell enclosure covered in Dubletta cloth with velour lined floors, this state is printed letterpress from metal type on handmade Twinrocker paper; one of the finest handmade papers being produced today. Established in 1971, Twinrocker was pivotal to the renaissance of hand papermaking in America. This edition is handbound by Rosy Gray in the United Kingdom.
