Description :

Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii [ix] x-xv [xvi] [17] 18-269 [270-272: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], rebound in three-quarter leather. First British edition. A collection of short fiction including fantasy, crime stories and science fiction, all with Australian settings. Sonnenschein's edition was printed on pulpy paper as a cheap yellowback at 2/0. The book was also published in Melbourne by G. Robertson in 1898. "'The Genius of the Glass' features a mind-reading machine that works even after the subject is dead. 'The Silent Sepulchre' features premature burial, catalepsy, hypnosis, comas and a man-eating dog. The title story, mixing horror and adventure in the outback, involves incestuous cannibals, lepers, giant wombats, romantic treachery, and gold. The author shows some rough vigor and imaginative touches but lacks the skill to use his material to best advantage. Still, an intriguing collection." - Robert Eldridge. Day, The Supplemental Checklist of Fantastic Literature (1963), p. 47. Larnach, Materials Towards a Checklist of Australian Fantasy to 1937 (1950), p. 14. Hubin (1994), p. 451. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Topp, Victorian Yellowbacks & Paperbacks Volume IX, p. 134. Text block printed on pulp paper stock and thus darkened and a bit brittle, rear joint repaired, a good copy of a rare book. (#149896). N° de réf. du libraire

Description du livre État : very good. Melbourne, George Robertson 1898. Octavo publisher's colour illustrated boards (edges worn). Last leaf, a blank before the endpaper, removed, natural browning of the paper, inner hinges cracked but firm enough; certainly read but still quite a good copy. First edition, Australian issue; the same sheets were issued by Swan Sonnenschein. A most busy collection of tales with, within very few pages, cannibals, a ghoul in the waterhole, a vampiric leper, a death adder, a husband cuckolded by his unsuspecting companion (puzzling huh?), and a fatal curse laid on the discoverer of the remains of the two protaganists (see cover). On to the second story - and we have photographic safeguards over a bank vault and an hypnotic burglar. Soon we are in the realm of hereditary catalepsy leading to premature burial; horrors in the tomb; a murderous husband who takes a razor to himself to prevent his dead wife meeting her suitor in the hereafter; the inadvisability of women lion tamers; Queen Victoria astral travelling to Melbourne; an Afghani ghost attending a picnic; a machine that will "read the last thoughts of a dead man's brain" . but I give too much away. An early reader has, in a tiny neat hand, deemed a trip between the Victorian and the Queensland borders in 24 hours as absurd. The rest passes without comment. The Australian Town and Country Journal's review probably sums up the book best: "irredemiably gruesome . ghastly in their grim and merciless realism and . so improbable that one is tempted to resort to the White Queen's recipe for believing impossible thlngs". Here's an easy to believe lesson for us all from Junor: "The sudden shock to my system, caused by total abstinence, effected so seriously a decline in my physical health that my mental faculties seemed unstrung, and my intellect dislocated.".
