A propos de cet article

Octavo, pp. [1-6] [1] 2-349 [350: blank] [1]-12: ads, flyleaves at front and rear, original decorated light brown cloth, front panel stamped in dark brown, spine panel stamped in brown and gold, floral patterned endpapers. First edition. Seven (longish) short stories, one of which, "One of the Thirty Pieces," is supernatural, and another, "Braxton's New Art," science-fictional (about the invention of pigments that change color with the season). Concerning the first, Brander Matthews wrote, "the fundamental idea ? has extraordinary strength perhaps not fully developed in the story. But others of Mr. Bishop's stories -- "The Battle of Bunkerloo," [also present in this collection] for instance -- are admirable in all ways, conception and execution having an even excellence." - "The Philosophy of the Short Story," Lippincott, October, 1885. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 170. Bleiler, Science Fiction: The Early Years 210. Bleiler (1978), p. 24. Wright (III) 535. Cloth rubbed at spine ends and corner tips, cloth a bit soiled, spine panel darkened, previous owner's small name sticker on title page with larger bookplate of same owner on front pastedown, small abrasions from label removal on front paste-down and front free endpaper, hairline crack along inner front hinge, rear hinge discreetly strengthened, a tight, very good copy.
