Gordon Dewey in FANTASY ADVERTISER, December 1948 notes five "printings," there was but a single printing. ". Putnam had been unable to sell a pitifully small edition of a thousand copies of THE SHIP OF ISHTAR in book form and the sheets for the last three hundred copies were finally purchased by Munsey, and were bound and distributed to readers of ARGOSY-ALL-STORY Magazine." - Sam Moskowitz, Explorers of the Infinite (Cleveland: World, 1963), p. 203. ". the most fully realized of all his fantasies." - Cawthorn and Moorcock, Fantasy: The 100 Best Books 36. "The most romantic of Merritt's works. Very uneven as a novel. Sometimes fascinating, sometimes dull; pretentious, yet with a knowing wink of humor now and then; finely imagined, if not always executed." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1157. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 3-42. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, pp. 130-31. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 3-246.
