Buckinghamshire, UK: Hague & Gill, 1948. First Edition Thus. Half-Leather. Small octavo, bound in half green morocco over green cloth boards, gilt titles on spine, hand-marbled endpapers. 76 pp. Five wood-engravings by Joan Hassall, two of which are full-page. Hand-made paper. With the bookplate "Ex Libris venerabilis conventus Fratvm B.V.M. de Monte Carmelo Aylesfordiae" on the front paste-down, with a note in pen on the plate stating "[The Aylesford Review Editor's Collection]". The colophon states that this is one of 200 copies, but Hague was dissatisfied with the quality of the printing on many of the sheets and decided not to go ahead with publication. He did, however, occasionally give away sets of sheets that were up to scratch - 20 or 25 according to his estimation - and some of these were bound up. Some copies have incomplete text, but not this one. A fine copy. Rare. Fine. Item #311186
