"This is the sixth Fleece Press book about the work of John Buckland Wright ... The images were prepared by Ian Wright Creative, and the book was printed by J.W. Northend in Sheffield on Stow Ivory Vol. 16, before being bound by the Fine Book Bindery in Findeon, Northants. There are 100 standard copies (A) which are bound in cloth. 220 copies (B) are bound in quarter cloth and a false Suminagashi marbled paper made for the book by Antonio Vélez Celemin in Madrid; they include an original tipped-in copper engraving 'Venus calling the Sea Gods' ... as frontispiece. These are housed in a slipcase. 40 copies (C) are bound in quarter vellum with the same marbled paper, housed in a slipcase. In addition to the tipped-in frontispiece as above, they include four original prints housed in a folder ... These copies are housed in a clamshell box. Six copies, lettered A to F [(D)], are not for sale. They are the same as the C edition in all respects but also include five prints ... All the original plates included with this book were printed by Jeremy Blighton and Anthony Dyson at the Black Star Press"--Colophon.
