"Mother and the Mangos" accompanied by watercolor paintings. Text at the last page reads, "From the Mother and
the Mangos was published in an edition of fifty-eight copies. The illustrations were printed at INK on PAPER on Harbor
Island and hand colored by. Mare Blocker was responsible for the binding and text pages, which were printed on
Sekishu, Mulberry, and Nideggen with Baltimore Type's Czarin. This is copy Number 5." Signed by the author and the
illustrator at that same last page. We contacted publisher Chales Seluzicki for more information, and we were told that
only half of the 58 copies were actually printed and published, making this a VERY rare item. Fitted beige colored
Nideggen paper covers, illustrated at the front with a watercolor painting by Angelina C. Marino. Sewn Nideggen
paper binding. The Nideggen pages throughout the book are beautifully illustrated with eight full page watercolor
paintings by Angelina C. Marino, with one fold-out illustration on thick Sekishu paper. The text is printed on nine
pages of thin near translucent mulberry paper. Housed in a wood clam shell case. The wood is covered in goldenrod
colored cloth, with two decorative impressions at the front, one of a spiral, one of three waves lines. There are a few
very faint creased at the edges of the front cover, possibley caused by something as simple as handling the book.
Otherwise the book is bright and clean, without tears, tightly bound, and in fine condition. The case is also very bright
and clean, without any chips or dents, and in fine condition. (F/No Jacket/F.) Unpag. Softcover Housed in Clam Shell
