Octavo, pp. [1-4] 5-9  11-318  [320: ad] + 16-page publisher's catalogue dated 1916 inserted at rear, original gray-green cloth, front panel stamped in black and blind, spine panel stamped in black. First edition in English. The first book "of a monumental weird trilogy, THE CREATED LEGEND (1914), a deeply flawed work that is nonetheless one of the most ambitious, bizarre, and fascinating achievements of fantastic literature. Whereas THE LITTLE DEMON devastatingly condemned the poshlost' of this world, THE CREATED LEGEND triumphantly asserts the transforming power of art, embodied in the Satanist mage-poet Trirodov (the author's thinly disguised surrogate). A extraordinary mélange of occult romance and political melodrama, Sadean horror show, and spiritual quest, this novel anticipates magic realism by two generations, audaciously melding reality and fantasy in highly colored prose. As an exercise in wish fulfillment, THE CREATED LEGEND ranks with Baron Corvo's HADRIAN VII, in its sheer outrageousness and improbability is often transformed into a vision of compelling power by Sologub's literary genius." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 394. The second and third books of the trilogy were not published in English until 1979 when Ardis brought out their edition, the whole translated by Samuel D. Cioran, with the first book titled DROPS OF BLOOD. Reginald 38077. Not in Bleiler (1979; 1992). Owner's signature on front free endpaper. Cloth lightly rubbed at spine ends and corner tips, a very good copy. (#136039). N° de réf. du libraire 136039
