It's a book, laid nicely in there with some bubble wrap. The dedication is to "Simon Jeremiah" (?), with much affection.

Make that two! A set! "Shepherd's Trade" and "What It's All About" by R.J. Berman. 250 of these were pressed and sold to his close friends and former students in 1983, and to my knowledge it hasn't been posted online yet. Let's take a look at these books and read a few chapters today.

The little engraving looks nice. No clue what it is. Pelion's logo?

"Shepherd's Trade" is of course a reference to Milton. I believe he was Berman's favorite.

This is where the companion text is mentioned. Berman left a few notes to be read alongside the book, and I'll post them after going through each chapter.

That was short. Nice imagery. His style isn't bad. Let's take a look at what the notes say about this chapter.

That's the end of chapter 2. May come back after a nap if people want to see a bit more of this book. What do you think?
