About this Item: Stone & Kimball, New York, 1896. Octavo, pp. [1-12] [1-2] 3-332 [333: colophon] [334-336: blank] [note: first and last leaves are blanks], title page printed in orange and black, original decorated green cloth, front panel stamped in brown, spine panel stamped in gold, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. First U.S. edition, later binding ("Stone/Chicago" at base of spine panel). "Folklore and pseudo-folklore of the Hebrides turned into stories, often expressed in Macleod's swollen, neo-Ossianic style." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1089. "Most of the FM stories, novels and poems were concentrated into four years (1893-6), produced almost with the fervour of religious experience. All have a dreamlike spiritual quality, capturing the folk-memory of Celtic myth and legend. Their popularity contributed to the Celtic revival of the 1890s. The best short fiction and sketches appeared as THE SIN-EATER AND OTHER TALES (1895) and THE WASHER OF THE FORD . (1896), which are mostly stories of spiritual transformation and second sight. In both books the title story features mythic characters whose actions consume or purify the sins of others." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, p. 608. See Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2-118. Schlobin, The Literature of Fantasy 946. Bleiler (1978), p. 131. Reginald 09510. Kramer 75 (not noting this binding). Gold lettering on spine panel very dull, a very good copy. (#118704). Seller Inventory # 118704

First Edition of this volume of verse by the Scottish mystical writer who wrote first as William Sharp and then, beginning in 1894, as "Fiona Macleod" -- a secret identity known to hardly anyone, in fact, as the years went by, barely to Sharp himself. The publisher, "Patrick Geddes & Colleagues," was formed in 1895 around the renowned Scottish biologist and urban planner Patrick Geddes, beginning with the periodical The Evergreen that featured Scottish-Celtic mystic literature and art. This is a remarkably fine, bright copy. Colbeck p. 741. Seller Inventory # 11326

About this Item: 1894. A Romance of the Isles. Derby: printd by Harpur and Murray at the Moray Press in May 1894 and sold by Frank Murray at his Bookshops in Derby Leicester and Nottingham. Original flexible boards covered with glazed grey-green paper elaborately decorated in gilt. First Edition (trade issue -- there were also 75 numbered/signed copies), published as a volume in the printer's "Regent Library." This "romance of the Isles" is in fact the first book to bear the name "Fiona Macleod" -- by this Scottish writer of the 'Nineties whose true identity was so long in being discovered.~From the very beginning a vein of mystic pantheism, born of these [Scottish Highland] mountains and his Gaelic blood, showed itself in the boy's nature. Three times he ran away from home to live in the mountain solitude, once spending an entire unforgettable summer in a gypsy encampment. [K&H]~Sharp went on to write both under his own name and under the secret pseudonym of "Fiona Macleod"; until his death at the end of 1905, only his wife and a few close friends knew the secret. Toward the end Sharp himself came to believe she really existed -- whether due to a form of multiple personality disorder or a form of sexual ambiguity.~Certainly Fiona was the better writer of the two. Though even in her writings there is often something a bit too soft and vague, they are alive with the mystery of the mountains and forests of Scotland; they have the supernal thrill that goes to the bone, and carry us to a land where it is always autumn. In them, Sharp expressed not only his Celtic heritage, but also the feminist aspect of his being; he himself said that sometimes when he wrote in her name he felt half-woman. [K&H]~PHARAIS is dedicated to "E.W.R." -- Edith Wingate Rinder, another writer of the Celtic circle in Edinburgh; Sharp had an intensely romantic but probably asexual attachment to Rinder, and later attributed all of his "Fiona Macleod" writings to her influence.~This is a very good-plus copy (the delicate paper-covered boards are rubbed at their edges, plus at one small spot on the front cover). A local production in Derby, this is a very scarce book; the comprehensive Colbeck collection contained two of the 75 limited/signed copies, but not a single trade copy like this one.

A Near Fine copy. 12mo., xvi, 149 pp., with 7 pages of ads at the rear. Blue cloth with gilt devices and titles, top edge gilt. Near Fine, leaves slightly tanned, one leaf has a large tear but closes with no loss, beautiful small Stedman book plate. Stamped and canceled ( Dec. 15, 1897 ) envelope addressed to Edmund Clarence Stedman affixed to front end paper containing a two page autograph letter signed from Fiona Macleod to Stedman care of Miss Rea, apologizing that her illness has delayed this note and thanking Stedman for sending her his book, what pleasure it gave her and that she likes all his books and feels, since she has heard so much of him from a common friend, that they too are friends. She also states she's enclosing a Gaelic Christmas greeting card and wishing him a Happy Year ending with'Sincerely Yours Fiona Macleod". Fiona Macleod was of course William Sharp and the Miss Rea the letter is sent in care of was a secretary with the Columbia Literary Agency who Sharp would depend on greatly as his illness worsened. Sharp would dictate letters to his sister Mary Beatrice who would write them so as to present a feminine hand. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 10971

A presentation copy, inscribed by the author opposite the half title page 'To Aunt Agnes with dear love for her Birthday - from Will 1896'.

Sharp wrote 'I was born more than a thousand years ago, in the remote region of Gaeldom known as The Hills of Dream'. Seller Inventory # 229042
