By Yvonne Skargon. London: The Primrose Academy (imprint of Primrose Hill Press), 1998. A signed limited edition of over fifty now famous wood engravings by the world renowned engraver Yvonne Skargon, printed from the block for the first time in this edition.

Words by Samuel Johnson, the son of a bookseller and a preeminent literary figure of early 1700's England, who acknowledges our debt to the feline race for understanding that "One's real life is so often the life that one does not lead." Introduction to Rose-Leaf and Apple-leaf. This private press edition brings together two of our bestselling commercial productions, The Importance of Being Oscar and Lily and Hodge & Dr. Johnson. Bound in patterned boards with gold lettering on buckram spine. 225 numbered signed copies. Printed on Zerkall mould made paper. Slipcased. 26x15.5 cm. Commercial editions also available.
