Lethe, Cupid, Time, and Love
New Orleans, Perdido Press, 1994. A trial edition, one of reportedly 10 copies printed by Edwin Blair of Perdido Press for John Dufresne and John LeBow, in preparation for a print run of 176 copies. This edition was never issued: John LeBow issued his own edition later that same year. A fine copy in saddle-stitched wrappers, and signed by Dufresne. With a 2003 letter of provenance laid in from the bookseller who first got the copy from Blain. A scarce, unpublished edition, much more elaborately designed and illustrated than the final published book. [#914646] $250
