Bound for Gorey: The Eclectic Abecedarium

In 1983 Edward Gorey published The Eclectic Abecedarium, his first miniature book. The first edition is limited to 400 copies, the first 100 of which are hand-colored by Gorey. In addition, copy 57 has been specially-bound in full green morocco by Michael Wilcox in 1989. This unique copy is available from Bromer Booksellers, Inc., which would seem to be directly related to the original publishers. The price on AbeBooks is $6050.
