London, Grant Richards, 1907. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A good copy only. First issue with four titles to the rear and no ads. The Friends of Arthur Machen refer to this as Machen's most important novel. Alas, the condition isn't top notch. The spine has a 50mm split to the exterion, the boards are rubbed, internally there is sporadic, light foxing and the rough-cut edges are worn and torn on some leaves. Coloured pencil mark to front pastedown. Still, an important work. [6543, Hyraxia Books].
