Publisher: Vancouver: Heavenly Monkey, 2000.
One of only two hors commerce copies for the publishers, one copy for Rollin Milroy/Heavenly Monkey, one for Charles van Sandwyk, this is Rollin Milroy's copy. Rather different from other copies: (1) printed on dampened handmade Barcham Green paper; (2) specially bound in full limp vellum by Richard Smart of the Olde English Bindery; (3) colophon is signed & marked in Charles' hand as "publisher's copy." A stunning production in Very Fine condition in alike slipcase. Most desirable for the Charles Van Sandwyk or Heavenly Monkey collector.
Charles Van Sandwyk's bibliography issued in 2000 was the first Heavenly Monkey book, it includes descriptions of the artist’s limited and trade edition books published to date. The two etchings included in the book have been fully painted in watercolor, plus an original pencil sketch for the second etching (the monkey) has been bound in following the etching.
