Privately printed edition of 50 copies One of 50 copies privately printed for subscribers only by P. R. Stephensen June, 1929. This example is unsigned. Sepia portrait frontispiece, decorative title in blue & brown, printed on japon paper. Unbound and in nine gatherings, 8vo, contained in near contemporary dark green card portfolio with label to front. "This little bunch of fragments is offered as a bunch of pensees, anglice pansies; a handful of thoughts. Or, if you will have the other derivation of pansy, from panser, to dress or soothe a wound; these are my tender administrations to the mental and emotional wounds we suffer from. Or you can have heartsease if you like, since the modern heart could certainly do with it." Book in good condition. The japon paper is lightly toned and there is the occasional small mark or very light spotting. The portfolio containing the unbound pages is in fair condition, being rather worn.
