July 1975

Stoneypath): Wild Hawthorne Press, 1975
19 x 28 cm. board war game for two players consisting of playing board, die cut counters and printed instructions. Fine copy of this rare work. Still in original plastic wallet and unusually here with mimeographed order form - black on pink 80gsm uncoated stock A4, folded to DL size as for mailing. This example has never been played - the die cut counters are still in their original card mouldings. Finlay's interest in the WWII war in the Pacific as metaphor led to the production of this unusual artist's game.
JOINT WITH:<BR< Original cardboard mailer with rubber stamp impression "Pacific The non-scale Wargame". VG+.
Finlay apparently believed that Pacific could be a successful and financially beneficial game but sadly that did not happen.

Dunsyre: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1975.
10.5 x 15cm, 2pp. The last of a series of "National Flags" created by Finlay - here the red flag (of war) has three tanks (rampant?) on it. In myth Viking warriors either go to Valhalla (a vast feasting hall overseen by Odin) upon death, or the fields of Fólkvangr hence this fictitious nation is warlike and requires such an angry flag. VG+.
