The Enchanted Ring, 1982

Second printing, looks like it was designed earlier.

Credit reads: Rendering of beta-lactam by Elizabeth Sheehan Watkins. Design by Celia Wilson.

Worth a zoom in (click) to see how they used green as one of the colors to get this odd overprint.

A beautiful Czech book, with the design carried through to the case.
