London, Henry J. Drane, n.d. [1907 BL]. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good copy. An uncommon book by an author about whom I can find literally nothing. Information on the book itself is a little more forthcoming thanks to the tireless work of John Clute. The book appears to be set in the early 17th century, wherein our protagonist meets Shakespeare and becomes the inspiration for Othello. The protagonist is awoken in the year 1906 where he sells his signed copy of Romeo and Juliet, and sees the world of 1906 as a veritable utopia. A nice copy. Spine and upper board a little toned, a little rubbing here and there and some spotting to the prelims. Top edge is dusty. Subtitled: being the strange narrative of one Geoffrey Grenville, Elizabethan, written by himself, and affirmed as truth on the word of his friend, Rudolph Courtney, esq., of Hadleigh Hall, near Brighton, in the county of Sussex / edited and prepared for the press by Vincent Wright [9597, Hyraxia Books].
