Edinburgh, Scotland: Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks, 1982. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Octavo. 60pp. Hand-bound brown faux leather, gilt titling to spine, b&w illustrations. Edition Limited to 250 numbered copies. Signed by Adam McLean. Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks No. 14. The text of Goethe's allegorical tale "Das Märchen" ("The Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily") translated and with notes by Donald McLean and a commentary by Adam McLean. First edition: early issue. This copy is typical of the early issues of this work: it has a low number in the sequence of limitation, the binding is a brown patterned faux leather, it has plain light brown endpapers, is printed on a buff colour stock, and with the title lettered down the spine reading "A Commentary on Goethe's Fairy Tale McLean" A chemical reaction between the endpapers and the binder's glue has caused some darkening to the outer margins of the pastedowns (a common occurrence with this volume) that has offset slightly onto the adjacent free endpapers. A few flecks on the first and last leaves, edges lightly foxed, otherwise a tight and clean copy in VG + condition. Item #38916
