In a blue slipcase. Gorgeous copy of the India paper edition. Presentation copy inscribed in green ink with a loving note from Patrick Macleod to his wife Yvonne: “My darling one, a book on your birthday and with it comes all my love and my gratitude always for the many, many moments of happiness you have given me since it all began 8 years ago tonight.” Doubtless a gift marking the beginning of his association with the Trianon Press of which he was the director, as well as being secretary of the Blake Trust.
