Miniature Book. 3 x 2 1/4 inches. 75, [1 blank] pp. Text in German and English 10 original marbled papers tipped-in; text clean, unmarked. Marbled paper over boards, blue leather band runs the length of the spine from top to bottom, spine label titled in gilt, this copy has an improvised plain paper dust-jacket, or perhaps a paper cover issued with the book when originally shipped, but not necessarily an integral part of the book as an illustrated dust-jacket might be; binding square and tight, the jacket was sealed with scotch tape at some point, and the paper on the opposite end of the tape is torn in order to open the wrapper, probably just clean paper to protect the book in shipment at some point in its personal history. SIGNED by the author on the colophon. From Glen Dawson's personal collection without distinguishing marks. GKK1020b-005. SCARCE in the trade. Fine. LIMITED EDITION of 210 numbered copies, this is number 97, printed at Druckerei Muller+Bass, Tubingen, hand bound by Maren Mau-Pieper, Tubingen, marbled specimens by Nedim Sonmez.
