About this Item

256pp. Illustrated with an abundance of full color plates Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dw. Particularly well preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp cornered. Beautiful book. Our most death-defying adventures and wildest flights of imagination - the stuff such as dreams are made of - this is the realm of fantasy. And ever since ancestral storytellers created myths of monsters, lost worlds, dragons, and heroes, fantastical tales have transported us to these magical places beyond. William Morris, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and Robert E. Howard are just a few examples of writers who sailed off the edge of their known worlds into those of their own creation.
