Miniature hardcover bound in purple cloth; one of 250 copies, this being number 63; oblong; 2.5 x 3 inches; [26] pages; black and white illustrations by Anne Easley. Book is in fine condition with no notable flaws. Black end papers with purple bird silhouettes. The Pig-Tale is a poem from Lewis Carroll's "Sylvie & Bruno." It concerns a pig who longs to jump and a frog who offers to teach him for a fee. The surreal poem is full of absurd images and ultimately the venture proves fatal for the pig, and futile for the frog. The story of the pig is interspersed with verses about little birds. A very scarce edition of this whimsical volume.
