(Lexington, KY: Petro III Graphics), 2004. First edition. One of only 30 SIGNED, numbered copies of Steadman's image of a multi-legged, tentacled Nixon. According to Steadman, "The Nixon Octopus was done at the height of the Watergate Scandal and this particular image was made on a Farmhouse Kitchen Table covered in a Plaid Oilcloth in Les Salces, a tiny village in the Languedoc region above Montpelier in the South of France, where we spent many idyllic summers throughout the seventies. Maestro Printer Joe Petro wanted to print a crisp clear edition of it, just an edition of 30, five artists proofs and five Printers proofs. It is a kind of Memory Lane Print. They were Halcyon days back then, and our politicians were all sweet guys who loved walking over their Grandmothers to get anywhere. You could smoke on Aeroplanes and make cheap jokes about knives and bombs as you went through Security to catch any flight about to leave in 5 minutes. We miss it all, and above all, we miss Richard Millhaus Nixon......so this print is a Memorial Print." One-color hand printed silkscreen on White Rising Stonehenge cotton paper measuring 22 x 30 inches. Fine.

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1879. First fully illustrated U.S. edition with 94 illustrations--including frontispiece, title page illustration, and one map--91 of which are full-page plate engravings by Meyer and Barbant.

Pale yellow endpapers, red cloth binding ornately decorated in black and gilt, with illustrations on front and spine. Flaking to the cloth and small hole to front endpaper due to insect damage, which is too bad as it is otherwise about very good with some light soiling but gilt bright, hinges cracked but binding still tight, light foxing to endpapers, contemporary gift inscription on front endpaper, etc. A relatively attractive copy despite the wear.
