Eighteen fantasies and sketches, most originally published in the British magazine COLOUR, "written in the decorative style popular among 1890s aesthetes; including 'The Were-Wolf,' a traditional treatment reminiscent of Housman's (though praised by Montague Summers) and 'Aphrodite,' in which a statue mistaken for Mary, Our Lady of Sorrows, inspires less than pious adoration." - Robert Knowlton. Bleiler (1978), p. 174. Reginald 12657. Corner tips rubbed, cloth just a bit dusty, a very good copy. An uncommon book. (#150792)
