Notes: A short account of Steadman's trip to Area 51 with his friend and screenprinter, Joe Petro III. The text appeared in different form in Hooked on the Outdoors (vol. 3, no. 5). Here it has a new introduction as well as color photographs and reproductions of drawings by Steadman.

These copies are also signed by Ralph Steadman, his wife Anna Steadman (who also went on the journey), and Joe Petro III. See Burns, Ralph Steadman: A Comprehensive Guide for Collectors, 2nd ed. for information on this issue of the book.
