"To illustrate this sister-volume to Apollonius of Tyre, published the previous year, I turned to Eric Fraser, who of course was not an engraver and had never worked with me before. He made wash drawings on linoleum which we printed over a terracotta tint which we repeated in the canvas of the ordinary bindings. The separate set of drawings accompanying the specials were printed without the terracotta background. These two volumes pleased me much".
From the library of Thomas Yoseloff, the last owner of the Golden Cockerel Press, by family descent, but with no ownership markings.
