A WEIRD TRANSFORMATION. M. Y. Halidom, pseudonym.

A WEIRD TRANSFORMATION. London: Thomas Burleigh, 1904. Octavo, pp. [1-4] [1] 2-296 [297-304: "press notices"] [note: first leaf is a blank], original decorated red cloth, front panel stamped in blind, spine panel stamped in gold and blind. First edition. Plucky young Briton possessed by spirit of malevolent Boer, "in order to revenge himself for his own death." Written in Halidom's distinctly plummy mid-Victorian style; his pseudonym has never been penetrated, but, like William de Morgan, he was likely a child of Dickensian days and came to fiction with his tastes fixedly old-fashioned. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 102. Bleiler (1978), p. 91. Reginald 06646. Early owner's inked signature on front free endpaper, several small damp spots on cloth, otherwise a tight, bright, very good copy. (#149732).

Price: $250.00
