London, William Blackwood & T. Cadell, 1824. First Edition. First Impression. Two volumes bound as one. Uncommon. One of the author's earliest works, first published in German in 1815. Hoffmann was one of the earliest writers in the fantastic tradition and a popular source. Highly influential in the 19th century but losing a little influence in the 20th century, though his legacy remains. A wonderful author, and much more accessible than many of his peers. An important work, influenced heavily by Lewis' Monk. Owner's stamp to the front pastedown, with his initials on the binding too. Binding in good shape with a little rubbing and wear. A tidy copy in a nice, later binding. [5678, Hyraxia Books].
