Reliure : Hardcover
Etat de la jaquette : Dust Jacket Included
Edition : 1st Edition
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).
