San Francisco: printed by Grabhorn-Hoyem for The Book Club of California, 1968. Hardcover. 128p., quarto, forepiece, sources, bibliography, vintage illustrations, decorations, first edition limited to 400 copies bound in decorative paper over 11x8 inch boards, has a lime-green cloth backstrip with printed tan label. The sole flaw seen is that the spine label shows a touch of foxing. Clean, unmarked and entirely sound, a very good copy. First complete edition, an unfinished task Burgess undertook in an effort, says the commentator, to be famous for something besides his 'Purple Cow' quattrain. Publication no. 128.
