New York, Scribner's, 1885. First Thus.First Impression. Hardback. Two [2] Volumes. Includes a biographical memoir by J.T. Bealby. Without doubt one of the most important figures in the development of the fantasy genre, though barely celebrated nowadays. A noted influence on Kafka, Poe, Gogol, Macdonald, Dostoyevsky and Dickens. Hardly a forgotten writer, certainly an under-appreciated one. The two volumes collect together the following works: The Cremona Violin, The Fermata, Signor Formica, The Sand-Man, The Entail, Arthur's Hall; The Doge and The Dogess, Master Martin the Cooper, Mademoiselle De Scuderi, Gambler's Luck, Master Johannes Wacht. The 'W' stood for Wilhelm, though from 1809 onwards in his artistic life he chose 'A' for Amadeus (for obvious reasons). It's unclear why this US edition chose to go with 'W', and other than one obscure German publication from 1814 is the only title we can find that uses the W - nothing particularly important but a marginally-interesting piece of trivia. Very good condition, endpaper a little split, as is the hinge, to volume one. Spines a little faded and boards rubbed. [6542, Hyraxia Books].
