Hardbound in hand-painted boards with a piece of painted silver foil affixed to the front cover. The actual book is in wrappers. One of 75 signed numbered copies with an original painting by Patchen on both the front and back covers and the spine. He has also painted the inside of the rear cover.This being number 48. Signed by him. This is a particularly special copy because it belonged to the Canadian poet Irving Layton. Although it doesn't have his ownership name on the book or an inscription to him we do have a letter of Provenance from Aviva Layton, his wife. The book was presented to Mr. Layton by the German poet Carl Amandola soon after it was published. It features a cut out clenched fist with a pointed finger on the front end paper and front paste down with Amandola's inscription. An excellent example of Patchen's art work, 3/4 of the covers.
