Quarto, [172] pages extensively illustrated (mostly in colour).

Blind-stamped and gilt-lettered full leather; covers very slightly scuffed; an excellent copy in the fine colour pictorial slipcase (with a tiny label numbered '179').

In this copy the book is not numbered, but the etching, titled 'Prince Raggi', is number 59 of 100 copies. A vividly 'colourful account in words and drawings of a journey made by the artist in a dug-out canoe from Pagui to the coast of the Sepik in 1977'.
