§ Limited to 26 lettered copies, signed by Sebastian, Fabian, and Clare Peake. There was also an edition of 100 copies unsigned. First published in 1939, the original edition is rare and very expensive as it was destroyed by enemy action during the war; after the war Peake colored the plates for the 1945 edition.
