A propos de cet article

Octavo, pp. [i-viii] ix-xviii [xix-xxii] 1-164 [165] [166-170: blank] [note: first and last two leaves are blanks; title leaf, not included in pagination, is on calendared paper and conjugate with frontispiece], 13 inserted plates six with illustrations by Walter Appleton Clark, the remainder photographs of Mexico, title page printed in orange and black, original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in orange, light green, black and gold, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. First edition, primary binding. "Despite the book's title, the nineteen narratives here clearly have literary rather than ethnographic intent and structure, with fully-shaped characters, plots, dialogue and other accouterments of fiction. Alas, the pretense of authenticity may have inhibited the author from exploiting the full artistic potential of these stories, many of which contain elements of the supernatural and macabre. The book is of more interest, finally, for the superb illustrations by Clark, who obviously felt no such inhibitions." - Robert Eldridge. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Day, A Supplemental Checklist, p. 46. BAL 10866. Not in Smith. Cloth just a bit dusty, a bright, near fine copy. (#113614). N° de réf. du libraire 113614
