Limited to 350 copies. Morris is at his most amusing discussing this imaginary kingdom, and does his part to keep the legend alive, issuing not only a silver 'coin' for the island nation, but paper currency and a map as well. On a more serious note, Morris provides a checklist for the publications of his own press (one of the finest in the U.S.) and discusses other privately struck coins. Morris's printing is outstanding, and anyone who appreciates a beautiful book should own at least one of his productions.
