Trade paperback, large oblong octavo in glossy card covers with French flaps. 192 pages. Chronology, Bibliography. Profusely illustrated with Gorey’s signature quirky images, some in color. Second printing of the first softbound edition by Abrams. Beginning with an interview of Edward Gorey by Clifford Ross, the book expands to “…a full-scale monograph that explores [Gorey’s] roles as artist, illustrator, writer and theater designer.” No previous ownership marks. No spine crease. A square, clean, fresh and unmarked copy. Fine.
