7 wood engravings by Reynolds Stone. 400 numbered copies printed, this one "out of series" with the place for numbering on the colophon neatly excised. Small 8vo., in the original special binding designed by George Fisher of orange oasis with the centre of each cover blocked in blind with an intaglio block of eastern design which had been acquired in Damascus by Gwen Davies, with the original card slipcase. Newtown: At the Gregynog Press.

Slight spotting to the last three blanks and a few dark spots to the oasis. This special binding must be additional to the 20 numbered special copies. This copy does not have the usual tooling on the turn-ins and is unsigned and was presumably a trial binding.
