A propos de cet article

Octavo, pp. [1-4] 5-427 [428] [429-432: ads], original decorated scarlet cloth, front panels stamped in blind, spine panel stamped in gold, publisher's monogram stamped in blind on rear panel, all edges trimmed. First edition. A variant binding for the publisher's "Haymarket Novels" series. Lost race adventure novel of the discovery of the Acans in the interior of Northern Australia. "Despite the ludicrous plot the first part of FUGITIVE ANNE, in which Anne is making her way across the countryside, is interesting. Mrs. Praed grew-up in a bush station, and her knowledge of the landscape and native life, which she conveys well, can be fascinating. As a result part of the book has a secondary appeal of an Upfield novel, Australia in the primitive days." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1814. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 178 (recording only a later edition: "an infuriatingly elusive book in British edition."). Australian and New Zealand "Lost Race" Fiction in the Collection of Stuart Teitler (private list), p. 3. Bleiler (1978), p. 160. Reginald 11863. Wolff 5623. Not in Larnach. Cloth worn and frayed at upper spine end, narrow stain along bottom edge of front panel, small stain at top edge of rear panel, front free endpaper detached (the endpapers are made from flimsy pulp paper), but still a tight, very good copy with bright gold stamping. A very elusive book in any condition. (#151629). N° de réf. du libraire 151629
