THE MOON ENDURETH. Tales and Fancies.

Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons. 1912. First Edition. Octavo, original grey cloth, gilt titles. 324 pp. + [4] pp ads + 64 pp publisher's catalogue bound in at rear, dated 3/12 There were two "issues" of this book with 2 different catalogues inserted, one with the catalogue dated 12/11 and this one, with the catalogue dated 3/12. As the book was issued in March, 2012, the printer used whatever catalogues were available to bind into the book; both issues were issued simultaneously, and the earlier dated catalogue does not grant priority of issue. Inner rear hinge cracking, spine a bit leaned, covers lightly rubbed and with a few small stains; a very good copy. Item #312531

Collects 10 stories and 10 poems; most of the stories are supernatural tales; Bleiler lists them as 'among Buchan's best work'. An uncommon book.

Price: $85.00
