Phantasmagoria and other Poems
Mac Millan & Co, London and New York 1869 - viii+202+[1 ad] pages Duodecimo (6 3/4" x4 3/4") bound in blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine and gilt pictorials to front and back covers with gilt ruled edges, page ends in gilt. First edition second state with "Alice" on the title page. Phantasmagoria is a poem first published in 1869 as the opening poem of a collection of verse by Carroll entitled Phantasmagoria and Other Poems. It is Lewis Carroll's longest poem and is a narrative discussion written in seven cantos between a ghost (a Phantom) and a man named Tibbets. Carroll portrays the ghost as not so different from human beings: although ghosts may jibber and jangle their chains, they, like us, simply have a job to do and that job is to haunt. Just as in our society, in ghost society there is a hierarchy, and ghosts are answerable to the King (who must be addressed as "Your Royal Whiteness") if they disregard the "Maxims of Behavior". Condition: Spine ends rubbed, corners bumped, spine slightly age darkened else a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
