First Edition.

There were also an additional 15 special copies issued in smooth green cloth with a numbered limitation notice and a manuscript page laid in, plus 25 others in green cloth with no inserts. Printed entirely by letterpress with hand-set type. A fine copy without dust jacket, as issued.


The colophon in this volume states: "This selection from the poem cycle, The Hill of Dionysus, has been hand set and printed by Roy A. Squires and Clyde Beck, who assumed the task out of friendship with the author but have completed it in memorium". Jack Chalker, in his work THE SCIENCE-FANTASY PUBLISHERS (Mirage Press, 1991), says of this title: "The book they did was a gem; all hand-set letterpress, all designed and produced with a mania for perfection.... You can hold the pages up to the light on this book and find that the print blocks on each and every page exactly line up. It's a gorgeous piece of bookmaking... superb."
