xxiv, pp 248 Finely printed Curwen Press edition of this posthumously published fantasy novel, so praised by C S Lewis in his blurb written especially for the book. Green buckram with gilt decoration, illustrated endpapers, frontispiece and maps by Keith Henderson, all very fresh. Just a little spotting to the edges of the text block and a small ownership signature on the first endpaper, otherwise near fine. Near fine jacket, not price-clipped. A very nice copy of a novel that has been described as being 'written in a meticulously recreated Jacobean prose style, seeded throughout with fragments, often acknowledged but often directly copied from his favorite authors and genres: Homer and Sappho, Shakespeare and Webster, Norse sagas and French medieval lyric poems.' Gosh.
