London, Heinemann, 1906. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A near fine copy. Ten excellent illustrations by Sime. A presentation copy, indicated by a blindstamp on the title page. Now, the interesting part is that this copy has calligraphic annotations throughout. Mostly spiritual phrases (that appear not to be quotes from anywhere). Given that it's a presentation copy, I'd like to speculate that it's Dunsany's hand. However, Dunsany's regular hand looks nothing like this; whether he practised calligraphy or not, I don't know. Secondly, I'm fairly sure Dunsany wasn't religious. So, a mystery. Have a look at the pictures for examples. Condition: the corners and edges are a little rubbed and worn, with a couple of chips. A little foxing to the edges and some offsetting to the endpapers. A nice copy overall. Illustrations by S.H. Sime [8881, Hyraxia Books].
