Description
A handbound 8vo book of verse with a folding portfolio hardcover wrap, with bone and silk-ribbon loop clasps. Includes 88 pages of hand-set type and four color woodcuts. Though the cover has the usual wear to edges and corners, it retains its deep red color and the book is in near-perfect condition. The poems are reprinted by the artist with permission from the editors of Asia and The Japen Advertiser.
