New York, Doxey's, 1901. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. 436/600 Copies. A very nice copy of an uncommon book, one of only 600 copies printed by William Doxey who was on the verge of bankruptcy at the time. The book has been popular with readers of horror and the supernatural for a century, due in large to the horrific descriptions of death. The book is near fine with some bumping to the spine tips, a little rubbing and a tight split to the front hinge. Barnitz, who had the book published anonymously, died shortly after its publication of a reported 'enlarged heart' though some suspect suicide. A masterpiece of decadent poetry. [7228, Hyraxia Books].
