¶ Note: this appears to be a prototype made for the author - it came from his estate - but it differs from other copies which we have handled, which were in black cloth bindings with printed paper labels on the spine. The text is a reproduction of typescript copy. The book was never published by Weiser, but this copy has a order slip laid in describing the content of the book and Muses' credentials and stating "Obtainable from your bookstore or direct from the publisher: S. WEISER, INC, 117 Fourth Ave, New York City 3, N.Y."
