Description :

Octavo, pp. [1-10] 11-318 [319-320: blank] [note: first and last leaves are blanks], original light blue cloth, front, rear and spine panels stamped in red. First edition. Complex psychological novel of the destruction of a young man's individuality through behavior control (seemingly a sort of primitive brain washing technique the narrator-victim terms "vivisection"). "All of Onions' works contain feelings of rejection and alienation, and none is more powerful in this respect than THE HAND OF KORNELIUS VOYT (1939), in which a boy comes under the psychic influence of the mesmeric Heinrich Opfer. As in THE STORY OF RAGGED ROBYN (1945), Onions develops an atmosphere of despair and of dislocation from reality." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 709. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy Volume II, p. 87. Bleiler (1978), p. 151. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992). Some foxing to edges of text block, else a fine copy in bright, very good pictorial dust jacket with light wear at edges, mainly spine ends and corners, and some internal reinforcement with brown paper tape. Externally, the stunning jacket, with fine illustration by Abbey depicting the sinister Herr Doktor playing chess, is very attractive. A scarce book rarely found in jacket. (#149986).

Description du livre Valancourt Books, United States, 2013. Paperback. État : New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. A striking contribution to the literature of darkness. - Humbert Wolfe A disturbing study of spiritual domination . . . subtle and terrifying. - Daily Telegraph Mr. Onions is an inspired writer . . . A poet of prose. - John Betjeman When Peter Byles s father dies shortly before the boy s thirteenth birthday, the young orphan is sent to live at the Victorian Gothic mansion of his father s friend, Dr. Kornelius Voyt. Peter arrives at the dreary house, surprised to find that he sees nothing of the enigmatic Voyt, instead passing his time in lessons with a young German tutor. But it soon becomes clear to Peter that these lessons are only preparations for something much more sinister that Voyt intends to teach him. Voyt, unable either to hear or speak, has learned to compensate for his disability by developing extraordinary powers of the mind, powers which allow him to communicate telepathically, control the wills of others, and even inflict pain on those who anger him. Voyt has a terrifying vision of the world s future, and he is determined to use Peter as a pawn in his inscrutable plans. . . . Best known today for his ghost stories, Oliver Onions (1873-1961) was also a masterful novelist, and all his talents are on display in The Hand of Kornelius Voyt (1939), which, as Mark Valentine writes in the new introduction to this edition, is a formidable achievement in sustaining an atmosphere of uncanny dread. This edition, the first in nearly fifty years, reprints the unabridged text of the rare first edition and features a reproduction of the original dust jacket illustration.
