His Man and He. Nobel Lecture, December 7, 2003

London, Rees & O'Neill, 2003.

Octavo; full Nigerian goatskin with gilt lettering (the author and title on the spine, the author's initials on the front cover); printed letterpress on Zerkall mould-made paper, bottom edge uncut; a fine copy with the cloth slipcase.

Published in an edition of only 87 copies ('75 copies, numbered 1-75, are bound in cloth; 12 copies, numbered I-XII, are bound in Nigerian goatskin. All copies are signed by the author'). This is copy number VI. Not only is the colophon signed, as stated, it is also inscribed by the author: 'Poor Poll, gazing out through the narrow window over the mast-tops and, beyond the mast-tops, over the grey Atlantic swell: What island is this, asks Poor Poll, that I am cast up on, so cold, so dreary?' (see page 17). The title page is also signed by the author.
