About this Item

Scarce fantasy in the tall-story vein of Baron Munchausen. Not listed in Bleiler. Translated from the French by Mrs Cashel Hoey and John Lillie. With 120 unattributed illustrations. Original brown cloth with pictorial blocking in pink, blue, black and gilt. The cover illustrations feature a small, fat man riding an ostrich and a flyaway manned balloon. Slight grubbiness to margins passim; bookplate removed from front paste-down but a sound and attractive copy. The US first edition of 1887 is fairly common, but this, the true first from 1886, is definitely rare. Bookseller Inventory # 3313

Store Description

I have recently moved the majority of my stock (c.20,000 volumes) to a beautiful new book-house in Szeged, Hungary. Most of these have been in storage for a number of years and have never been offered for sale online. My stock is hand-picked and consists principally of literary first editions in English, French, German and Hungarian. Over the coming months and years I will be uploading these books to ABE, launching a Hungarian booksearch service and starting my own publishing company. Watch this space as there will be some real rarities for sale. Please contact me with any wants in the field of 19th & 20th century literature as I may have just what you want in stock.
