[Colorado Springs, Colo.]: The Press at Colorado College, 1991. Edition limited to 50 copies (this, no. 9), signed by the printer and designer, James Trissel, and also by the photographer, Stuart Klipper; oblong folio, pp. [50] and but for the title-page spread, printed on rectos only; with 28 mounted black & white photographs, each approx. 3" x 4"; bound with concertina guards around signatures to compensate for the tipped-in photos, in pale blue Japanese cloth over boards, silver-stamped spine, in matching cloth slipcase. Presentation copy from Trissel on the colophon: "To Greg Campbell with many, many thanks..." Shamlessly taken from a catalogue description by the Bromers: The photographs were taken by "Stuart Klipper during an expedition to Antarctica in 1987. Klipper had joined the crew of the Bermudian yacht War Baby on a two-and-a-half-month journey that covered over 4000 nautical miles. The text accompanying the images consists of excerpts from the log of the War Baby's skipper, Warren Brown, and quotations from the renowned Irish ice-sailor, John Gore Grimes." Laid in are 3 letters from Jiim Trissel to Greg Campbell, Campbell-Logan Bindery, (1) asking if he (Greg) would be interested in binding the book; (2) reporting on the progress of the printing and the mounting of the photographs, and getting the sheets ready to ship; and (3) a letter of presentation enclosing the book itself.
