This copy is inscribed by Haberly in the form of a poem, on the leaf before title page: "To Dorothy & Carroll, Our worst between us and the starry quest, Our Best Between us and jungle night, We are not ever wholly damned or blest. We are not ever wholly wrong or right: Divinity that makes poor dust so proud Is lightning leaping from a sombre cloud, Leaving the long gloom deeper for its light- affectionately, HAB."
