The two volumes contain different versions of the book. In the first volume "black drypoint sketches of flowers and two cataclysmic abstractions lead to a more profound reading of the text. A second volume . . . repeating the same text, contains color photographs from ophthalmological studies of pairs of eyes that overwhelm and disrupt the pages of type, as they magnify disturbing nuances in the story"--Castleman, 179.Price Realized (with Buyer's Premium) $531
