"Limited Edition" edition, and while the print-run is not given it was evidently quite small given the scarcity of the book. This copy is SIGNED by the author under her portrait on the title page, and on the same page is INSCRIBED by her to British artist, writer and musician DAVID TIBET (founder of the music group Current 93). Thus from the library of David Tibet with his OWNERSHIP SIGNATURE in the upper right corner of the same page. The privately printed true first edition of this comprehensive work on Runes, with concepts, mythology and magical applications based on Dutch/Frisian traditional lore. Includes a clear explanation of the runes and their placement and significance in the runic alphabet and introduces the use of runes in therapy and healing. Covers a bit rubbed and worn with some creasing to upper cover, a few bumps and marks from handling and light foxing to page edges. Still a tight unmarked about VG copy of a rare inscribed copy of a hard-to-find edition. Item #68431
