New Orleans: Pirate Press, 1948. First edition, limited issue; 200 numbered copies were issued (according to the colophon); this is an unnumbered copy. Hardcover. Clothbound chapbook and a genuine oddity: a pair of short tales about brain transplants. Very good only in grey cloth with title to front board; the boards are a bit splayed and show some mild fading and splashes of dampstain.
