London: Grey Walls Press, (1946).
1st edition, full dark gray cloth, with printed dust jacket. Specially inscribed and signed by Patchen in year of publication to his friend, the artist Arthur Sturcke, on the FEP. The inscription reads: "for Arthur / on his birthday: 1946 / with all the respectful & affectionate / good wishes of Miriam & Kenneth" in blue fountain pen ink. Additionally laid in is the back half of an envelope showing Patchen's address in Connecticut. Considering the inscription, and the closeness of their association, this was likely a birthday gift from the Patchens to Sturcke. The text of this collection was selected and introduced by David Gascoyne, and includes a preface by Alex Comfort. There was not a US edition of this title. A lovely association copy between these two artists and friends, in fine condition. Signed copies of this title are very scarce. Item #5692
