Item Description: Alfred A. Knopf, New York City, 1927. hb. Small 8vo, pp. 313. Helen Hope Mirrlees (1887-1978) was a British poet, novelist, and translator (she spoke six languages by her mid-20s), and friend of Virginia Woolf. Her best known work is "Lud-in-the-Mist", which was first published by W. Collins Sons in London, in 1926 (See Bleiler, "The Check-List of Science-Fiction and Supernatural Fiction"). It "is a unique fantasy novel, slow moving and exquisitely written, fairly short and very much unlike the typical Tolkien rehashes of today" (George T. Dodds, SF Site Reviews). This is the first American edition. This title has been re-published numerous times, starting with a mass-market paperback in 1970, and is now available in the abhorrent POD (print-on-demand) format (the book equivalent to a TV dinner). Our copy shows rubbing to the edges of the boards. The paper title label, affixed to the spine, is slightly pulled away, but not torn. The half-cloth spine, and the boards, are lightly soiled. The "Borzoi"-design endpapers are clean and tight, although the binding feels very slightly sprung. The contents are clean and bright. Overall, in good, to good plus, condition. No dust jacket. Bound in original patterned paper over boards; half cloth spine. Bookseller Inventory # 033995
