§ A virtually flawless copy of the first edition which came out as collecting private presses was beginning to become fashionable. Franklin, who passed away recently (2020), dominated the private press market for many years and championed presses when they were virtually unknown like the Daniel Press for example. He was criticized at the time for including auction prices but today they are interesting as history. The second edition came out in 1991 and was considerably expanded (and the prices were dropped).
