A first edition limited to 500 copies and a considerable work of art in its own right: "Beautiful though this relam of yours may be, to me it is a prison and you are a gaoler. To escape from it is my one desire nor can I doubt that Rama, using unthought-of means, will find a way to get me out." ; 11.5" x 8.5" x 0.9"; 162 pages
