Item #301192

Although only 5 numbered copies were issued, Hagstrom notes that “at least two printer’s proofs are known to exist”, but gives no description of these latter, or if they were signed. This is quite possibly a signed proof

In any case, all copies of the first, are of the utmost rarity, in any form.
