Cambridge, MA: Ibex Press, 1966. Signed Limited First Edition. Softcover. Printed and illustrated by Laurence Scott. Out of a total edition of 150 copies, this is one of 45 hors commerce ("HH") signed by both Auden and the illustrator Scott. Also laid in is a presentation letter by the illustrator to a Mr. & Mrs. Stevens who Scott credits with introducing him to Auden's writing. The Stevens were apparently friends with Auden, and Scott calls it a "treat" to send them a copy of MARGINALIA (this copy). The letter is signed and dated November 16, 1866. The addition of the A.L.S. plus signatures of both Auden and Scott, make this a desirable item. 8vo, marbled paper-covered paperback binding, with label on front cover; long-stitched binding. Good to very good copy, with rubbing and minor chipping to along edges. Scarce item.
