A propos de cet article

Octavo, pp. [3-7] 8-177 [178-194: publisher's ads] [note: text complete despite gap in pagination], original crimson cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black and silver. First edition. "A short novel set in downtown New York (or Chelsea, as it's currently known), its hero an independent young man of such refined aesthetic sensibilities that he can 'conjure phantoms.' The story involves jewels, pawn brokers, rare books, crimes, a magic Herb, and an eccentric and possibly immortal man. It's written in a lively style and looks promising. The author went on to write another half dozen novels, mostly novelizations of Broadway plays. He was a professional, in other words, unlike many in the Neely stable. The book shows nine holdings in U.S. libraries, none in the UK: so much for the 'Englishness' of the imprint, which led Wright to ignore most of this publisher's titles." - Robert Eldridge. ".a minor classic." - Stuart Teitler. Not in Wright, who does, however, record another novel by Harding, AN ART FAILURE: A STORY OF THE LATIN QUARTER AS IT IS, published in 1896 when the Neely imprint ran, "New York, Chicago." Reginald 06769. Day, The Supplemental Checklist of Fantastic Literature, p. 39. Hubin (1994), p. 372. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). Small remnant of a bookplate on the front paste-down, else a fine copy. Scarce in trade. (#147970). N° de réf. du libraire 147970
