Stephen Gray writes in his introduction, Sinclair Beiles is a legend that lives and accretes. I tried to find him in Europe, but each time he was frontiers in the other direction. Then he was in the doorway of a travel agent in Athens his straw hat much deformed by wind and tide.He is extremely pleased that his collaboration with Cecil Skotnes had resulted in the woodblocks that illustrate the Tale. Here they are then. They will amuse South Africa coming from this prodigal, generous vagabond whos never washed of his South African youth.
Gryphon Poets. 1972. 46 pp with poems by Sinclair Beiles, original woodcuts by Cecil Skotnes and foreword by Stephen Gray.
Slightly marked covers with light foxing on end papers, D6 written in pen inside. Otherwise a good clean copy.
