London, Grant Richards, 1902. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A near fine copy. Machen's philosophical look at literature's effect on readers wherein he describes the ability of the highest literature, in its examination of the unknown and infinite, to provide the reader with ecstasy. A continuation I guess from Edmund Burke's sublime before him and Longinus before Burke. Condition: Some rubbing to the spine label, and the spine. A little fading to the rear. Some tanning to the leaves. A very respectable copy. [7955, Hyraxia Books].
