London: Vale Press, 1902. 17 pages. 29.5 x 20 cm. Printed at the Ballantyne Press for Hacon & Ricketts in red and black under the supervision of Charles Ricketts in the King's fount. Roderick Cave in "The Private Press," notes, his (Ricketts) practice of thinking each work out afresh was a valuable lesson for latter book designers, and most notable perhaps in Meynell's work at the Nonesuch Press. Limited edition, one of 300. Slight nick to corners, endpapers toned. First edition thus. Orig. holland backed boards, uncut, paper label upper front cover. Very good.
