A propos de cet article

Octavo, pp. [1-10] 1-340 [341: blank] [342: colophon], title page printed in black and brown, original purple cloth, front and spine panels stamped in yellow, running Borzoi stamped in blind on rear panel, patterned endpapers, top edge stained yellow, fore and bottom edges rough-trimmed. First U.S. edition. "Psychological novel of spiritual conflict; psychic English expatriate opposes and vanquishes a Polish diabolic cult. Literate, intelligent, passionate; one of the better supernatural novels of the period, undeservedly forgotten." - Robert Knowlton. "A long psychological novel portraying in supernatural terms both the degeneration of European society just before World War I and the spiritual odyssey of a sensitive young man . Somewhat reminiscent of the novels of E. F. Benson in its concept of spiritual evil, but much more powerful and grotesque." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Literature 517. A sense of the author's tone might be gathered from his disclaimer (printed here but not in the UK edition), "All the characters and happenings described in this book are imaginary. No reference is made to real people. There are no real people." Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-60. Tuck, The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction and Fantasy, p. 137. Bleiler (1978), p. 60. Reginald 04127. A fine copy in near fine pictorial dust jacket with tiny chips from lower spine end and lower right corner of front panel. (#149574). N° de réf. du libraire 149574
