DescriptionOne sheet of sandy brown paper, 22 x 28 cm. Title of poem is printed upper case in Delphian (Open), in black. Above the title is a simple annulet, in red. Poem is printed in black. On the reverse, printed in black italics with the initial word rubricated, are three paragraphs by Richard Outram on the book Nineteen Ways of Looking at Wang Wei / How a Chinese poem is translated (Mt. Kisko: Moyer Bell; 1987). (The poem 'Seat of the Buddha' is Outram's own English version of Wang Wei's poem.) At the base of the page is: 'Richard Outram', in black. Above the first of the paragraphs, centred, is an ornament of a stylized pine cone, blocked in relief, within a square blocked in red; after the first and second paragraphs, lattice ornaments appear, the first blocked in indigo, the second in red; after the final paragraph, just above Outram's name, the stylized pine cone appears again, this time blocked in indigo, without the enclosing square. Both of these ornaments are from the font 'Arts and Crafts Dingbats'; they appear in other Gauntlet Press broadsides (cf. 'Ms Cassie and Lantern', 'Ms Cassie's Autumn at the White Cottage', and 'Tundra Swans').
