Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-190 [191-192: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First edition, first printing. The author's first novel. "Weird thriller of a vampiric aesthete who drains creativity from his proteges; Wildean allusions in the characterization and cultural milieu, 1890s Decadence refracted through the New Aestheticism of 1907, of which Viereck was a prominent advocate. An unusual variant on the vampire myth, overwritten but quite effective, especially the uncompromising finale." - Robert Knowlton. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 175.
