2016. Tartarus Press, First Ed. First Printing, thus. LIMITED ED. OF ONLY 300 COPIES. "'The Cosy Room and Other Stories' by Arkham House author of 'The Green Round' is a collection of Arthur Machen's short stories curated by John Gawsworth (aka Fytton Armstrong) in 1936. As well as exhuming some very early tales published in the first half of the 1890s, Gawsworth included Machen's decadent prose poems from 'Ornaments in Jade', and later work commissioned by Lady Cynthia Asquith (Arkham House author of 'This Mortal Coil') for collections such as The Ghost Book (1926) and Shudders (1929). Among other curious items, 'The Cosy Room' collected 'The Islington Mystery', an account of the likely murder of a taxidermist's wife by her husband that, as James Machin writes in his Introduction, 'wouldn't be out of place in Borges's [A Universal History of Infamy]'. But the highlight of the collection is 'N', the only original contribution to 'The Cosy Room', and perhaps the most interesting and thought-provoking story of Arthur Machen's later career. 'N' is a distillation of many ideas he had previously explored, but they are perhaps more perfectly expressed in this tale than in any other.'". This copy has a two flaws--the back cover is bumped at the top front and there is a very light minor bump on the front cover at top front. Otherwise this would be an as new copy. Only because of this(for which I am discounting the price to $43.40 from $56.00). I am calling the overall condition (because of these only) Near Fine in decorative boards in Near Fine color illustrated DJ with red ribbon marker. N° de réf. du libraire 9358
