Item Description: F. Tennyson Neely, Chicago/New York, 1895. Hardcover. First edition, first issue in green cloth, no inserted frontispiece. p.318 is blank. Contemporary owner's name front fly, moderately soiled, a presetnable very good copy with light rubbing. A collection of stories, four of which revolve around the nonexistent play "The King in Yellow" set in the land of Carcossa, which when viewed or read drives the viewer into madness. The central premise, of the play that makes one crazy, found its way into various later horror fiction, including the iconography of H.P. Lovecraft, and most recently, forms the basis of the plotline in the HBO series "True Detective". "One of the most important works of supernatural horror between Edgar Allan Poe and modern horror fiction." - Bleiler. Bookseller Inventory # 392969
