Description :

Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1] 2-303 [304: printer's imprint] + 8-page publisher's catalogue dated "1124" inserted at rear, original red cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, front cover stamped in blind. First edition, second issue with inserted publisher's catalogue dated "1124." 1250 copies printed, this copy being among those comprising the first of several reissues of 650 to 750 sets of first edition sheets. Lindsay's masterpiece. "A classic allegorical romance in which the landscapes and inhabitants of the planet Tormance provide an externalization of the moral and metaphysical questions that preoccupied the author. Its incarnate theological system influenced Lewis's OUT OF THE SILENT PLANET (1938), and it also bears some similarity to George Macdonald's LILITH (1895), although it is very much a work sui generis." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 2-72. "Some of the imagery is borrowed from Norse mythology (Surtur and Muspel) but the metaphysics that is gradually elaborated is basically a transformed evolutionary theory that applies a harsh metaphorical Darwinism to the business of personal intellectual development. A masterpiece, unparalleled in its graphic imagery and in its ambition." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 5-184. "VOYAGE . has become one of the most widely discussed and debated fantasies of the twentieth century, and it is well on its way to becoming one of the most influential." - Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature IV, pp. 2039-45.
