THE MAN WHO DIED A STORY
Covello CA: The Yolla Bolly Press 1992. [Covello, CA]: The Yolla Bolly Press, [1992].. Folio. Open-sewn limp goat vellum over stiff wrappers. Illustrated with woodcut plates by Leonard Baskin. Fine, in publisher's cedar and bay laurel wood box. First edition in this format, with a commentary by John Fowles. From a total edition of 135 copies printed on Somerset paper, with illustrations printed from original woodblocks by Leonard Baskin, all signed by Baskin and Fowles, this is one of thirty-five deluxe copies, specially bound and boxed, with a separate suite of the nine woodcuts, each signed by the artist in the margin. An additional hors-text impression of one of the woodcuts, also signed by Baskin, is laid in the book. Fine, with prospectuses and publisher's letters/announcements laid in, along with the set of cotton gloves provided by the publisher for handling the book. Five of the thirty-five deluxe copies were hors commerce, and evidently some out of series copies in the ordinary binding were accompanied by copies of the suite.
