Edition : 1st Edition
Octavo, pp. [1-4] 5-324, original navy blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in red. First edition in English. Exploits of a super criminal whose weapon of choice is hypnosis. A translation of DR. MABUSE, DER SPIELER (Berlin: Ullstein, 1920), which appears to be Jacques' only book about the sinister doctor (Jacques shelved a sequel in the 1930s). A very popular silent film based on the novel, directed by Fritz Lang from a script by Thea von Harbou, was produced in 1922. There were many filmed sequels by Lang and others. "The new [German] fantasies of the 1920's often feature exalted, superhuman characters who rebel against discipline and the order of the world, who acknowledge no law, and do what they please. Power is their aim, the manipulation and control of their fellow beings, and a feverish spirit is apparent in these books, of which Norbert Jacques' DR. MABUSE, DER SPIELER is perhaps a typical example." - Franz Rottensteiner, "German-Language Fantasy Since 1900," Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature, pp. 2403-2404. Bleiler (1948), p. 160. Reginald 07762. Hubin (1994), p. 435. Not in Bloch (2002; 2010). Early owner's signature dated 1927 on front free endpaper. Cloth lightly rubbed at spine ends, corner tips, and along outer joints, several mild stains to rear cover, a very good copy. A somewhat scarce book seldom found in such nice condition. (#130327).
