Never seen or heard about such a booklet and I don´t recognize the artist from the two pictures.

I asked the seller if he could put more pictures online so we could have a closer look at it.

Hello everyone!

I stumbled over an auction on Ebay, and after asking the seller about who has printed it, the headband and dyed edge, he has posted some pictures which are quite strange for me.
It appears to be a 1977 George Allen & Unwin, printed by Clowes & Sons with a unpriced dustjacket and bind in cloth,
therefor it should be a Export Edition Variant 1 as listed on Deagols site (Kudos to your work! It was and is really a great help for me).
But there shouldn´t be any edition which has a blue and white striped headband and no blue dyed top edge.

Open in new window

In the pictures you can see, that the top edges from the cloth are faded nearly to grey.
Is it possible that the blue dye on the edge of the paper faded away too or someone sandpapered it for whatever reason?

Maybe someone can shed some light on this.
