A propos de cet article

Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1-3] 4-216 [note: first leaf is a blank], inserted frontispiece, original decorated red-brown cloth, front panel stamped in dark brown and gold, spine panel stamped in gold. First edition. Collects six short stories, including four fantasies and a detective story. "A Primer of Imaginary Geography" takes the narrator and reader on board the Flying Dutchman for a tour of lands from literature and legend. "The Kinetoscope of Time" displays similar marvels, courtesy of its owner, Cagliostro. In "The Dream-Gown of the Japanese Ambassador," the precipitating agent is a crystal which throws the narrator into a wonder-laden trance. (In this story, the author "invokes fairly sophisticated psychology to account for seemingly supernatural effects." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1132.) "The Rival Ghosts," which is probably the author's best known story today (and was first printed earlier in a volume jointly written with H. C. Bunner), two quarreling ghosts are discovered to be male and female -- and are married off in order to get some peace and quiet. Schlobin, The Literature of Fantasy 726. Bleiler (1978), p. 136. Reginald 09820. Queen, The Detective Short Story, p. 73. Hubin (1994), p. 563. Wright (III) 3657. A fine, bright copy. (#64031). N° de réf. du libraire 64031
