A new edition of a 18th c. work written in a lunatic asylum, first published in the modern era in 1939. However, Bond realized the 1939 edition had wrongly arranged the poem, and that it should be read antiphonally. Bond re-arranged the 1939 work so the two parts are read in conjunctionas in Hebrew Poetry, making it far less less mad than the work first appeared. Very good / very good, price clipped.
