Purchase, NY: Ear / Say, 1987. Thick oblong octavo. Woven decorative cloth and decorated boards, paper spine label, ribbon tie. Illustrated in color throughout. Minute trace of rubbing to lower fore-tips, otherwise fine. First edition. With illustrative matter based on art weavings by Sandra Brownlee-Ramsdale, and with chants and stories by Dennis Bernstein. Copy #2 of fifteen numbered copies, specially bound with an original woven spine, signed by Lehrer, and with a swatch of weaving depicting an animal tipped to the front pastedown. There was also a trade issue of 635 ordinary copies in wrappers."An extended visual fugue based on the long-forgotten but important [imaginary] animals of the earth ... this volume attempts to document the evolutionary and social patterns of these mytho-hysterical creatures." The book was printed via offset in a manner that "allowed for experimentation with translucent, opaque, and iridescent inks, split fountains, overprinting techniques and multiple plate exposures." The book was printed on Mohawk Superfine text paper, and this copy is inscribed by Lehrer on the title to Mohawk Paper Company (one of two copies presented to them by Lehrer). Laid in is a one page t.l.s. forwarding the two copies of the deluxe edition, dated 4 April 1989, apologizing for the delay in the preparation of the special copies, and commenting on the press the book had received and the response from parties who have been show regular copies by Mohawk. Also laid in is a copy of a publication press release.
