Notes: Inscribed on the verso of the title-page: 'Kathleen, with my love, John. Hot from the press!' - the recipient was the poet Kathleen Raine, to whose 'Temenos' journal Moat contributed; this copy appears to have been so 'hot from the press' that Moat has neglected to hand-colour one of the illustrations, as per the colophon.
