THE TERROR: A FANTASY. London: Duckworth & Co., [1917]. Octavo, pp. [1-4] 5-190 [191: ad] [192: blank], original light blue-gray boards, front, spine and rear panels printed in black. First edition. Animal revolt in rural England during the Great War. "... this remains the most interesting of Machen's later weird tales." - Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-136. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1076. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 525. Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 278. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 3-160. In 333. Bleiler (1978), p. 130. Reginald 09472. Goldstone and Sweetser 16a. Text paper age-darkened as usual, a nearly fine copy in very good pictorial dust jacket with light edge wear, two short closed tears mended internally with archival tape, and some dust soiling, mostly at spine panel and flap folds. This fragile wartime production (wood pulp paper and cardboard binding) is seldom found in nice condition and is quite uncommon in jacket. A better than average copy. (#130372).
