Rare Paul Edwin Zimmer booklet from Triskell Press

Paul Edwin Zimmer, “Woman of the Elfmounds”: Though there is some age fading, and the bottom corner pages are a tiny bit bent, this 1979 booklet from Triskell Press (Charles de Lint’s press) is in excellent shape. It has an introduction by Evangeline Walton, and two tiny, exquisite inner Celtic knotwork dingbats. Otherwise, clearly typed on Selectric, offset printing. A collector’s item!
