Dunsyre: Wild Hawthorn Press, (1982)

Artist’s book with two drawings of the Japanese planes trying to return to their aircraft carrier which is on fire as a result most had to crash into the seas and the pilots drown. The quotation is “The last honey by the water that no hive can find.” from Austin Clarke’s The Cattledrive in Connaught” 1925. The Clarke quotation has its flaws – it is the bee that seeks the pollen not the hive so the line is rather reversed but Finlay ignores that (as he does in other publications such as the Black Sparrow Press, publication also of 1982 called “Honey by the water.” VG+.
