ADD TO WISHLIST

London, Methuen, 1920. First Edition, First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Lacking the jacket. Currey's binding A, issue A. Being the earliest issue of the book (gilt stamped spine, undated ads), one of c600 copies out of 1250. A rare work of fantasy, will elements of science fiction. Highly regarded and influential, undoubtedly a highlight of speculative fiction collecting. An influence on both Tolkien and Lewis (Sayer, p153: Humphrey, p) [Bleiler, p124 as Occult, Extraterrestrial Cultures and allegory]. Spine faded, spine tips and corners bumped and softened, some bumping elsewhere. Cloth a little wrinkled. Tear to cloth at top - looks to have been glued at some point. Top edge a little dusty. Internally quite nice with just a few small stains. [Manlove, p4; Cawthorn & Moorcock, p71; Roberts, p164; Barron, 2:72] [8925, Hyraxia Books].
