Brisbane: Locks' Press, 1979. Folio. (10)ff. One of 60 copies, signed by illustrator and Locks' Press co-founder Margaret Lock. Eight black & white engravings accompany Lear's nonsense poem about a man who has his toes stolen (possibly by mermaids) while swimming across the Bristol Channel. This is the first book of the Locks' Press imprint, which was founded by the husband and wife duo, Fred and Margaret Lock, and focuses on small editions of literary texts that have stood the test of time. Bound in beige canvas, painted black at the spine to give a quarter-bound look, with lithographed endpapers evocative of underwater plants.
