London: (Printed... at the Curwen Press), Published by Cassell and Co., La Belle Sauvage, 1932. Limited edition, no. 64 of 215 copies, folio, xx, 146 pp. 32 coloured pochoir illustrations - 14 full page, marbled endpapers. Bound by Sangorski and Sutcliffe in later vellum with yapp edges, without the morocco onlay found on copies bound up earlier , t.e.g., gilt titled spine, very faint soiling to the spine ends otherwise a lovely copy, cloth slipcase. A "major landmark in Nash's artistic career, providing him with a rich source of visual imagery to which her returned for the rest of his life" (Colvin), and perhaps the finest achievement of the Curwen Press. However it sold poorly - 15 guineas being an enormous sum in the post-depression years, and only 80 copies were immediately bound up. Colvin 19. Item #37678
