San Francisco: Arion, 1993. Leather Bound. A fine copy. Squishy paper and goatskin spine do wonders to conjure up the dreamy fluidity of Freud's personally narrated analysis; and Jim Dine writes a brief statement how immersed he himself became ("the privilege and the horror") translating the story to visuals. One etching here is printed so dark (wolves in a tree @ p.29) that Hoyem has provided a tissue-guard. 114p., 9.5x11.75 inches, introduction, designed by Andrew Hoyem, and printed by letterpress, the fonts are Monotype Century Old Style, handset Century Expanded italic, and Miller & Richard Old Style capitals, in black and red inks; the paper is French mouldmade Johannot for the text and English mouldmade T. H. Saunders Drawing for the prints. Casing has a goatskin spine and cloth boards, in a lovely cloth-and-paper slipcase; book numbered and signed by the artist in an edition of 250 copies, this being 129. Laid in is the original purchaser's paid invoice: $950 less subscriber's 30% discount. Condition: book is absolutely sound, clean and unmarked; the excellent slipcase is not quite immaculate, one panel bears a dozen minuscule flecks (these of mineral nature, thank goodness, not organica). Publication no. 41.
