ADD TO WISHLIST

London, W. Kent and Co., 1852. First edition, first impression. Paperback. A very good set. Original wrappers. Complete in three parts as indicated in the final volume. An uncommon collection, no copies located in commerce. Four copies located on JISC. Steelnib is clearly a pseudonym and not one I've been able to find ownership for. The preface suggests the eight tales are directed to a G.F.H. Esq, and the contents suggest a mix of horror "The Haunted House" and science fiction "A Visit to the Moon." along with a couple of fantasies and crime pieces. Ticks all the boxes for the era. Unimaginative titles aside, it's most likely a marginal additional to the genre, but an addition nonetheless. The wrappers are mostly split, some hanging by string. Some chipping to the wraps, and a little fading. Internally quite neat. A few markings from a few generations of booksellers. [9554, Hyraxia Books].
