Book Description Ferret [1980]., [London], 1980. Large octavo, pp. [i-v] vi 1-246, double columns, boards. First edition. Part of the very limited "Gamma" series, being number 19 of 33 copies with laid in booklet printing "The Haunted 'Pampero,'" short story by William Hope Hodgson. This private library catalogue is an essential source for information on nineteenth- and early twentieth-century science fiction and fantasy literature, especially British publications. Approximately 3100 books are described with full bibliographical particulars, including identification "points" for Locke's personal copies plus other editions, printings, issues and states where relevant. Locke provides notes indicating thematic content of each title, a valuable feature for collectors of "forgotten fantasy" as his collection includes many of uncommon and/or obscure early works not recorded elsewhere in such detail. Thematic emphasis of the collection is interplanetary fiction to 1914, future war fiction, lost race fiction, utopian literature, and supernatural fiction (the latter of special interest as Locke identifies fantasy tales published in single author collections of mixed stories). A major reference tool for collectors and researchers interested in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century fantastic fiction. Anatomy of Wonder (1987) 8-4. Burgess, Reference Guide to Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror 181. Mild bumps to lower corner tips, else a fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket with matching bumps and a small scuff at bottom edge of front panel. (#142180). Bookseller Inventory # 142180

Book Description Ferret; Ferret; Privately Printed, [1980], [1994], [London], 2002. Large octavo, three volumes: pp. [i-v] vi 1-246, double columns; [i-ii] iii-iv 1-156, double columns; [1-4] 1-235 [236], double columns, boards. First editions. This private library catalogue is an essential source for information on nineteenth- and early twentieth-century science fiction and fantasy literature, especially British publications. In the first volume, approximately 3100 books are described with full bibliographical particulars, including identification "points" for Locke's personal copies plus other editions, printings, issues and states where relevant. Locke provides notes indicating thematic content of each title, a valuable feature for collectors of "forgotten fantasy" as his collection includes many of uncommon and/or obscure early works not recorded elsewhere in such detail. Thematic emphasis of the collection is interplanetary fiction to 1914, future war fiction, lost race fiction, utopian literature, and supernatural fiction (the latter of special interest as Locke identifies fantasy tales published in single author collections of mixed stories). The second volume includes additions to the collection (1980-1993) together with additional notes on titles covered in the first volume. The third (and George says final!) volume includes bibliographical details of new acquisitions (books, magazines, typescripts, manuscripts, artwork etc), plus numerous appendices, indices and other material, including an index by author, illustrator and title to all three volumes. A major reference tool for collectors and researchers interested in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century fantastic fiction. All three volumes have presentation inscriptions by Locke to a private collector on the front free endpapers. A fine set in fine dust jackets. (#155993). Bookseller Inventory # 155993
