1 The Tit-Bit

Lacks small corner of rear wrap and a corner of front wrap is creased and tender. Blue wraps with evidences of faded title on front cover.

2 Ragnand, Tintrim Hu÷nn Four whimsical vertical leporellos housed in a Shimmelpenninck Cigarette Tin
1982 Limited Edition Tin Box Near Fine 
No. 1 or 2 of 50 limitation. Closed, 8 by 6 cm. When open, with nine pictorial panels, 54 by 8 cm. The playful panoramas are a daisy chain of free flowing imagery. So one, when closed, showing webbed feet at the bottom and a giraffe neck and head on the top, has the a goose head on the top, webbed feet on the bottom, and in between, as if a single object, a knotted tube with penis tips, a salamander, a gecko or other such reptile, human acrobats, human hands, etc. The potpourri of imagery, or its cumulative effect, is a challenge to capture in words. The others are loosely plant-life related, beverage-related, and acrobat themed. While there were apparently 50 copies issued, we have been able to locate no other copies of this, and as far as we can tell, there was no title. We have to assume the group is complete.
