Description :

Small octavo, pp. [1-9] 10 [11] 12-194 [195-196: ads] [note: first leaf is a blank], one illustration by N. W. Physick, title page printed in red and black, original maroon cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. First edition. The author's first novel. Visiak's "best work shadows SF, horror and fantasy modes, employing speculative metaphysics in a manner similar to the fiction of his friend David Lindsay. In stories of this sort, the consensual word is argued -- sometimes in passages of considerable length -- as being an expression of the dream world, or world of archetypes. Such texts do not easily fit into template definitions of the various genres of the fantastic . THE HAUNTED ISLAND is clearly fantastic, and engagingly deploys ghosts and magic in a tale of pirates set on a mysterious island in the 17th century." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, p. 987. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 175. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 219 (describing a similar copy). Bleiler (1978), p. 200. Reginald 14687. See Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 444 for a concise summary of Visiak's contributions to the horror genre. Some foxing to endpapers, else a fine copy. The pictorial front panel of the dust jacket is neatly tipped into the gutter fold of the front endpapers. A very scarce book. (#151702). N° de réf. du libraire
