San Francisco: The Colt Press, 1942 [but bound in 1973].

First edition, signed issue, in second (later) issue "Grabhorn-Hoyem" binding, limited to 21 copies (bound thus), signed by Edmund Wilson [only circa 10 copies of the signed issue were bound by Colt Press, and issued at the time of original publication]. pp. [viii], 113. 8vo. ONE OF 21 COPIES SIGNED BY EDMUND WILSON. Black leather spine stamped in gilt, decorative blue paper-covered boards. The book and the broadside are in fine condition Item #327014

Laid into the book is the publisher's small broadside (dated "May 15th, 1973"), discussing the publishing history, signed by Jane and Robert Grabhorn (the publishers) [single sheet, measuring 6 by 9 inches, printed on recto only].
The publisher's broadside states (in part): "... Recently when Grabhorn-Hoyem acquired the equipment and accumulated debris of the old Grabhorn and Colt Presses, twenty-one unbound, signed copies of this title were discovered... So it is reasonably certain that up to now this edition has been truly hors commerce."
