A propos de cet article

Octavo, pp. [1-2] [i-iv] v [vi] 1-77 [78: blank] [79-80: ads] [81-82: blank] [note: first and last leaves are blanks], original pictorial tan boards, front and spine panels printed in brown. First U.S. edition. "During Machen's lifetime 'The Bowmen' was easily his most influential work of fiction, in ways he never predicted. First published in a 1914 Evening News after the Battle of Mons, it told how British troops, their retreat cut off by the Germans, were miraculously rescued by a ghostly St. George and his bowmen of Agincourt. Widely accepted as true or as a genuine legend, the incident is regularly referred to even today, in books of occult lore and oral histories of the Great War." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 278.
