Book Description Contact Editions, Paris, 1926. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. [1926]. PRESENTATION COPY. SIGNED and inscribed: "To Dora 'My only Friend' [signed] Bob Coates," on title page, with a printed copy of a photograph of the author laid down to front free endpaper. The true first edition has only been known in wrappers; this copy is professionally bound in plain unlettered contemporary dark red cloth with all edges trimmed. Possibly a presentation binding state done by the publisher for the author, or done by the author himself, or even possibly done by the recipient (doubtful). In any case, this is a cloth hardcover binding contemporary with the publication of the book. A surreal science fantasy/crime novel with a mad scientist and a "peeping Tom" ray. The novel was influenced by the principles of DaDa, the nihilistic art movement and its literary offshoot in the Paris of its day. Book Condition: Very Good: Firm copy, softened corners, some rubbing to the faded spine. Small news clipping photo of Author mounted to ffe. Lightly tanned papers. Signed.

Book Description The Macaulay Company [1929.], New York, 1929. Octavo, pp. [1-10] 11-238 [239-240: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], original yellow cloth, front panel stamped in black and silver, spine panel stamped in silver, top edge stained yellow. First U.S. (and first hardcover) edition. The author's first book, "an ignored minor masterpiece of antirealistic fiction, a novel that deserves the attention of all students of fantasy literature." - Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature I, pp. 463. Coates' novel "quite brilliantly applies a wide arsenal of literary devices, some of them surrealistic, to the exaggeratedly spoof-like tale of a master criminal and his absurd super-weapon, which sees through solids and applies remote-control heat to kill people invisibly; beneath the spoofing and the cosmopolitan style lies a sense of horror." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 239. Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 2-16; (1987) 2-18; (1995) 2-20; and (2004) II-267. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 438. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 54. Bleiler (1978), p. 45. Reginald 03107. A fine copy in fine pictorial dust jacket with hint of wear at spine ends, light dust soiling, mainly to rear panel, and a bit of sunning to spine panel (light blue ink a trifle faded). The rare wraparound advertising band with Ford Madox Ford quote is present. Overall, a stunning copy of a book rarely encountered in nice condition. (#149447). Seller Inventory # 149447
