(#77264) THE CLOAK OF FRIENDSHIP. Laurence Housman.

THE CLOAK OF FRIENDSHIP. London: John Murray, 1905. Small quarto, pp. [1-8] 1-2] 3-192, title page printed in red and black, original decorated brown buckram, front and spine panels stamped in gold, all edges untrimmed. First edition. A collection of seven Christian fantasies of dutiful suffering similar to those published earlier in ALL-FELLOWS: SEVEN LEGENDS OF LOWER REDEMPTION (1896). THE CLOAK OF FRIENDSHIP "contains some truly heartrending tales of virtue uncrushable by evil circumstance ... [including] 'The Troubling of the Waters,' a fine moral fantasy which bleakly accepts that miracles may have evil as well as good consquences." - Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2-84. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Free endpapers a bit darkened, two small private owner's printed book labels affixed to front paste-down, a very good copy. (#77264).

Price: $85.00
