December 1980

n.p. : Parret Press, 1981
9 x 10.5cm, 28pp plus card covers. One of Finlay's most rare books this is a book of "definitions" where a common word is given (usually a classical) new definition. For example,:

HARE, n. a creature second in swiftness to the tortoise.

One of only 75 copies each of which is signed by Finlay published at Christmas 1981 - this example has sadly had some water damage in the past which can be seen on the outside and inside of the cover and along the inner spine although the texts and inner pages are unaffected.
