1st edition/1st printing. #705 of 1500 limited edition copies. The book is bound in paper-covered hardback boards with a title paper label in light blue and the spine is dark blue cloth with gilt printing. It is straight, clean and has no previous owner writing in it, with just a bit of shelving spine end wear. The price intact dustjacket is clean, unfaded and crisp, with a few small, shallow edge chips and a few small rubs. From DJ: "What he [the author] sings of is the eternal things, love and beauty, the perilous magic of the sea, green fields and gracious woodlands, even the moon."
