8vo. Original wrap-around dark green card jacket with onlaid pictorial plate by van Sandwyk and border designs printed in black and gilt, over maroon card covers, hand-stitched; pp. [20], with additional interleaves; with a fine onlaid etching by the artist in pencil, presented as a frontispiece, together with printed calligraphy by the author, and printed illumination, alongside pen-and-ink drawings throughout printed on varied, and irregular, stock (with half-leaves), including on tinted semi-opaque paper, together with 5 full-page illustrations with delicately printed colour; a fine copy; scarce.
First edition de luxe, limited to only 120 copies with the original signed etching by the artist, of which the first 50 were reserved for Patrons of the High Branch Society.

An exquisite and soulful homage to the mystery of trees, in verse.
