NUMBER 56 AND OTHER STORIES . Translated by Phyllis Megroz
Octavo, pp. [1-4] 5  7-8 [9-10] 11-239  [241-248: ads], original red cloth, spine panel stamped in black, publisher's device stamped in black on rear panel. First edition in English. Translation of RUE DES FILLES-DIEU 56 (Paris 1895). First story is criminous. The other three are decadent and grotesque fantasies; influenced by Poe's fanciful tales but more nightmarish, hallucinatory. "Lucignole" is Mendes's most famous story, in which a sadistic hideous dwarf blinds nightingales (including his pathetic ward) to make them sing more sweetly in darkness. Reginald 10007. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). Hubin (1994), p. 568. Cloth soiled on rear cover, spine panel sunned, a good, tight copy with clean interior. (#147326). N° de réf. du libraire 147326
