New York: Harcourt, Inc., 2000. 8 1/2 x 5", oblong. Design binding by Patrice Miller of Aredian Press, 1/4 bound black leather spine with cutout black strips, artistic illustrated paper over original cover, textured endpapers with illustrations of poison labels attached, original book content complete, fine condition. (Toledano A31[d]).

A typically strange Gorey work with a beautiful custom binding. Very limited edition, the artist has stated no more than 5 copies will be issued. Patrice Miller's work has found its way to private and university collections, in the states and abroad. Human foibles, nature’s panoply, and artistic cleverness cannot help but inform future work. She continues to bind, and rebind, in Dallas, Texas. The story, told in rhyme, centers around the happenings in a valley in wintertime, as the title suggests. Many of Goreys typical themes appear through the book: an orphan, a large bird, a man in a fur coat, a statue, etc.
