Newark, West Burke, Vermont: The Janus Press, (1976). First edition. Limited to 150 numbered copies printed, torn, cut, & bound by Claire Van Vliet at the Janus Press on & of Kozu, Fabriano & Canson paper. Although not issued signed, this copy is signed by Schuyler on the front free endpaper. One of Schuyler's scarcest books owing to the fact that most of the edition went to subscribers of the press, with the result that few copies of this delightful book have been available for collectors of the poet. Narrow, three-quarter inch strip of light fading along the top of the front cover, otherwise a fine copy. 8vo, illustrated with architectural cut-out endpapers fashioned after the topiary gardens at Levens Hall, Westmorland, England, original orange decorated wrappers.

Price: $1,250.00
