Number 21 of an edition of 50. “Kuthan’s Menagerie of Interesting Zoo Animals” was published in 1960 from the private press of Robert and Felicity Reid, but only 60 copies of the intended edition of 130 were ever bound. Heavenly Monkey completed the edition with this run of the 50 remaining copies of the book that had lain untouched in Fritz Brunn’s bindery for over 40 years.
