[24] pages (2 pages on folded leaf) Hamady, Walter. Interminable gabberjabb ; 1. "The first in a series aptly entitled 'The interminable gabberjabbs'"--Page [12]. "Exactly 120 copies all numbered & initialled"--Colophon. The copy numbering was done using a cow-tattoo machine having only one of each numeral 0 through 9 and one of each letter A through Z; therefore improvization was required to number 120 copies "and the full accounting will go to the Perishable Press Limited archive at SUNY at Stony Brook"--Page [9]. Different sized handmade papers, red, black, brown and blue inks, sewn binding. Endpaper is part of a US Geological map. Cover wrapper is blue Fabriano paper. Library has copy no. 25.
