HE. By the Authors of "It," "King Solomon's Wives," "Bess," "Much Darker Days," "Mr Morton's Subtler" and Other Romances. London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1887. Small octavo, pp. [1-8] [1] 2-119 [120: ad], rebound in old drab wrappers. First edition. A bibliographically complex book, this is probably the first printing (for bibliographical particulars see Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy Volume II, pp. 143-4). A Haggard parody, perhaps written with some assistance from Haggard himself, that "consists of adventures around London paralleling those of Holly and Vincey, culminating in a swindle." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction, p. 299. The supernatural (curses, witchcraft, etc.) are parodied and rationalized. An amusing story. Bleiler, p. 118. Reginald 08596. Scott 625. A very good copy. (#138574).

Price: $225.00
