Description :

Octavo, pp. [i-iv] v-viii [ix-x] 1-433 [434: blank] [435-438: ads] [439-440: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], inserted frontispiece with illustration by Joseph Clement Coll, original cream paper wrappers printed in black with Coll's frontispiece illustration reproduced on the front cover. Advance issue of the first edition. Merritt's first book. Fix-up novel fusing classic novelette, "The Moon Pool" (ALL-STORY WEEKLY, 22 July 1918) and its inferior sequel "The Conquest of the Moon Pool" (ALL-STORY WEEKLY, 15 February-22 March 1919). "Merritt followed Burroughs in winning great popularity as a pulp magazine purveyor of exotic odysseys, escapist fantasies whose protagonists enjoy themselves in gorgeously decorated dream worlds. Although his penchant for purple prose annoys some critics, Merritt provided much more vivid descriptions of his dream worlds than Burroughs ever could, and was much more intense in his involvement with his Secondary Worlds, though his plots tend to be weak ritualistic affairs following the favorite formula of Rider Haggard." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 5-208. "Fine imagination, fast motion, ridiculous characterizations, pretentious style, but still one of the historically important works of early American pulp science-fiction and fantasy." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1156. Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 2-69; (1987) 2-77; (1995) 2-87; and (2004) II-762. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 3-245. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1481. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 557. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 155. Schlobin, The Literature of Fantasy 745. Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature III, pp. 1060-64. Survey of Science Fiction Literature, III, pp. 1449-52. In 333. Bleiler (1978), p. 138. Reginald 10066. Minimal darkening of light-colored wrappers, short diagonal crease at top corner of front panel, top corners of a few leaves lightly bumped, overall a very impressive copy of this fragile item. Only three of these advance copies are known to exist. (#149448). N° de réf. du libraire

Description du livre Liveright Inc., New York, 1932. Hardcover. État : Very Good. No Jacket. Merritt's first book, a "fix-up" lost-race novel fusing his classic novelette "The Moon Pool" (All-Story Weekly, July 22, 1918) with its inferior sequel "The Conquest of the Moon Pool" (All-Story Weekly, Feb. 15-March 22, 1919.) "Fine imagination, fast motion, ridiculous characterizations, pretentious style, but still one of the historically important works of early American pulp science-fiction and fantasy," notes Bleiler in his "Guide to Supernatural Fiction." Further, "The Moon Pool stories were perhaps the most influential science fiction in the United States of their day" -- again Bleiler, in "Science-Fiction, The Early Years." A doorway in the South Seas leads to a vast subterranean civilization, older than recorded time, where a conflict rages between the "Shining One" and her legions of worshipers, and the devotees of the "Silent Ones." The ending of this version differs slightly from the original, published in book form in 1919 by Putnam's. The 1919 copyright date (only) is retained here, but Merritt is listed as the author of "Ship of Ishtar" (1926) and the consensus publication date for this Liveright reprint is 1932. Inscribed and signed "A Merritt" to blank verso of the dedication page. Hard to find any edition of this book inscribed by author, who died in 1943. Fantasy/science fiction; 432 pp. Inscribed by Author(s). N° de réf. du libraire 005964
