NYC: AMS Press Inc, 1970
29 x 12cm, unpaginated. Original blue cloth covered boards with foil embossing of the title on the spine. An authorised reprint of the entire POTH series in a single bound book. Each is in facsimile of the original although nrs 1 - 12 had to be reduced in size by 5% to fit the format.
Surprising in some ways that Finlay agreed to the republication given his tendency to want control over publication quality. I any case this is a very rare publication.
