Portland, OR: Image Gallery, 1977. Hardcover. Number 77 of 250 copies. Signed by Elliott, Brannen, McClarty, and Van Cleve. A beautiful collaborative limited edition with translations of 21 Japanese Fudoki poems dating from the 8th century. John McClarty's subtle and lovely woodcuts and Clyde Van Cleve's printing arts serve to honor these ancient poems, say the translators. Inserted in the book is an original woodcut titled and signed by McClarty. Bound in cream cloth with stabbed sewn binding and paper title label to cover. Book is in near fine condition save for a couple of small spots on the top page edges, but unfortunately the dust jacket is dampstained on both the front and back covers. Measures 8 x 10 inches. Unpaginated [about 45 bi-fold pages]. PRI/072022. Very Good.
