"THE PURPLE CLOUD remains Shiel's masterpiece, still the best last man novel. It is finely imagined and displays Shiel's stylistic brilliance at its best." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 2027. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 2-138; (1981) 1-152; and (2004) II-1004. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 692. Clarke, Tale of the Future (1978), p. 28. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 196. Negley, Utopian Literature: A Bibliography 1029. Survey of Science Fiction Literature IV, pp. 1735-38. In 333. Bleiler (1978), p. 179. Reginald 13027. Morse, The Works of M. P. Shiel Updated (1980), p. 116-17. Small early owner's name rubber-stamped on front free endpaper and old Dublin bookstore stamp on front paste-down. Some foxing and tanning to endpapers, some foxing to text block, mostly a few pages towards the end, some tanning to spine panel, as is usually the case. Overall, a superior copy of a scarce book seldom found in nice condition. Among the better copies we have seen. (#144971). N° de réf. du libraire 144971
