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.

This is copy number V. Not only is the colophon signed, as stated, it is also inscribed by the author: 'God's grace is swift, but might not the great blade of tempered steel, being heavier than a pebble and being greased with tallow, be swifter?'
