A presentation copy with signed inscription by Mordell dated 7 January 1964 on the half title leaf. Albert Mordell (1885-1965) was an early champion of Hearn and his literary criticism. Motivated by Laura Stedman's poor bibliography in Gould's CONCERNING LAFCADIO HEARN, Mordell located, by his count, 552 articles, stories and translations which had never appeared in book form. Damp stain to cloth, a very good, internally fine copy in poor dust jacket with wear and shallow chipping along top and bottom edges and matching damp stain. (#164111).
