About this Item

188 pp. 12mo. This book was originally published in 1904 as ÒThe Strange Visitation of Josiah McNason: A Ghost StoryÓ in magazine format, in Strand Magazine by George Newnes. It did not achieve book format until this 1912 publication by Hodder & Stoughton. It is a ghost story of Christmas, clearly derived from DickensÕs ÒA Christmas CarolÓ. Marie Corelli (1855Ð1924) was born Mary Mackay in London, the illegitimate daughter of the Scottish poet Dr. Charles Mackay. She lived a very bohemian life, likely lesbian, and was a prolific author of romance, fantasy. spiritual and mystical stories and novels, easily outselling H. G. Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle and others. Much of her work made it to silent film, including ÒThe Sorrows of SatanÓ by D. W. Griffith, starring Adolph Menjou, Ricardo Cortez and Carol Dempster. Covers soiled and spotted. End papers browned. OwnerÕs signature on front free end paper and ink markings on front pastedown. Else, Good +. Salmanson, www.violetbooks.com/corelli.html Red publisherÕs cloth. Gilt titling and decoration on spine.
