Tan cloth with cover design of a lily stamped in white and gold; 8vo. 49 pp. This copy inscribed "To Charles Noble Gregory with the very warm wishes of the author". One of 250 copies, of which 100 were for sale. Poems on the Ukioye School of Japanese painting. Ficke with Witter Bynner concocted a few years later one of the great literary hoaxes with the Spectrist poems. Tips bumped, covers lightly soiled, but a very good copy, the lovely cover decoration by Gookin bright without flaking.
