Signed by the author on the title page. This edition limited to 300 copies. Ray Russell. He’s a very dear friend we’ve never met in the flesh. He is a bookman of the first order. He knows his stuff and has the ability to talk about it, write about it, make films about it- even make music about it. Okay, so he has a full head of luxurious hair. Let’s not hold that against him. Admittedly, he can, at times, write over my head. But then, I am but a simple man with a modest-size air-conditioned brain (no hair). Tartarus has done a number of books on books and they’re all terrific and they’re virtually all out of print. All kidding aside, you’ll love Ray’s book and will appreciate his genuine love for bookmaking, book writing and literary history. Recommended. #65860
