About this Item: George Redway, London, 1884. Hardcover. Condition: Good. 1st Edition. First Edition, first printing of the author's first book (a single anonymous privately printed pamphlet aside). 8vo. 86pp + [ii] publisher's advertisements at rear. Vellum boards lettered in red at spine and upper board. Boards lifting just a little and with some expected age soiling and minor discolouration. Some browning and a few instance of light spotting to title page, and fore edges of the untrimmed leaves occasionally lightly creased and nicked. Small blemish to front pastedown, possibly where a small bookplate was once in situ. Really quite a crisp copy of an uncommon item. The publication of this pastiche enabled Machen to secure cataloguing and magazine editing work with his publisher Redway, which in turn led to his noted translations of works by Marguerite de Navarre, Béroalde de Verville and Casanova.
