- The word "Going" on the title page appears three times, each time more faded than the last - the last is embossed into the paper without any ink.
- "Forty five copies of this book have been painstakingly printed at The Chevington Press in that haven of opportunity, the port and town of Goole in East Yorkshire. The etchings were drawn and duly printed by the artist on his old star wheel engraving press. The 14 pt. Caslon was set by hand and printed by the artist on his elderly Albion Press, heavily adapted for the purpose on this occasion. The paper covers on the binding inspired by rhinoceros hide, are also etchings, also printed, at some risk to his arthritic wrist, by the artist. The paper is mould made Somerset White. The binding was helpfully assisted by Steve Ingram and Dave Robinson at the Bindery in Kingston-upon-Hull."--Colophon.
- Quarter bound in black leather with gilt title label on spine and dark grey rhinoceros-hide-patterned paper-covered sides.
- Special Collections & University Archives copy 1: No. 8/45, signed by the artist.
