About this Item

(8)ff. Printed in red & black throughout. The text is divided into three one-page "chapters": the first chapter, titled "The Early Years" reads simply, "Born with potential." In Chapter Two, or "The Middle Years," we learn that the author "Lived with potential." By the time we hit the third chapter, ominously titled "The End Times," we discover that our subject "Died with potential." Kirkpatrick is a talented English binder who has produced some very elaborate designer bindings over a long and distinguished career. We presume this little book is an early effort. Bound in black morocco with rainbow-colored onlays running across both covers, ending in the author's initials in gold on the lower front cover. Housed in a paste-paper slipcase with a rainbow ribbon pull. Slipcase shows slight rubbing, else fine. (3/4 by 1/2; 20x13mm). Bookseller Inventory # 25823
