Stockbridge: Bocaccio Books. 1970.

First and only edition, 106 of 300. 4to. 305x208mm. 103pp. Fore and bottom edges left untrimmed. Illustrated throughout. Very good in blue half morocco and mustard buckram. Backstrip has some fading and there is a small white mark on the lower cover. In the original slipcase with wear to extremities and sun-fading to both sides. Very much a product of the British counter-culture, this book consists of drawings in the Art Nouveau / Rackham / DuLac style that the British psychedelic underground used - very heavy on the cod-Victoriana. All the drawings are partially hand-coloured and accompanied by lyrics by Donovan and extracts from the romantic poets.
