A very rare Merton book
was added to this collection recently – arguably the rarest of all, with only 5 presentation copies printed. Here are the details:
- Waters of Silence (1950) published by Theodore Brun – limited deluxe presentation edition (number IV of V).
Details: Leather, no jacket (as issued). A very rare book – the “Limited de Luxe Edition is published by special arrangement with Messrs. Hollis & Carter, Ltd., and appears simultaneously with their first edition.” 120 copies of the deluxe edition were printed (of which 50 copies were for Book Club members only) plus an additional 5 copies , numbered I to V , were struck off as presentation and reference copies. This is one of those presentation copies (number IV).
