Articles & Chapters
In verse.
The verse is on the theme of the poet's early years in the countryside and the illustrations evoke powerful images of old farm implements, buildings, crows and smoky kitchens.
"This edition ... is sadistically limited to 15 copies: five for le roi Ronald King ... two for Sacré James ... two for the dream library of Gervais Jassaud, which magically leaves six available for the real artists' book lovers of the world ... All fifteen copies are illustrated directly by Ronald King and signed by the artist and the poet."--Colophon.
Consists of 9 bifolia loosely inserted in illustrated paper wrapper; ill. on p. [17] movable.
