Haberly later briefly headed the Gregynog Press, although his tenure there was not a success. This is one of the scarcest titles from The Seven Acres Press's output of 21 titles, published in an edition of only 60 copies, this one numbered 26, additionally signed and dated by the author/illustrator/printer/binder.
