An attractive, much better than. average copy of a scarce book rarely found in nice condition.. (#149686). First edition. "Mixed collection of criminous and two notable supernatural tales; the title story concerns fin-de-siecle diabolism, enjoyed success de scandale as supposedly describing actual practices by same circles Huysmans frequented during research for LA-BAS; 'A Kiss of Judas' peculiar variant of vampirism, undercurrents of anti-Semitism and transsexual eroticism.
