LILITH: A ROMANCE .
London: Chatto & Windus, 1895 - Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii [1] 2-351 [352: blank] + 32-page publisher's catalogue dated "March, 1895" inserted at rear, title page printed in red and black, original black cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, all edges untrimmed, white endpapers with floral pattern printed in blue. First edition. MacDonald's second (and last) adult fantasy novel. "It has parallels with PHANTASTES (1858) and shows the slight influence of Carroll, but it is easily the strangest product of Victorian fantasy. It is the obvious parent of Lindsay's VOYAGE TO ARCTURUS (1920) and fascinated C. S. Lewis; as an allegory of heterodox Christianity it bears an interesting relation to the works of T. F. Powys." - Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2-115. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1068. Bleiler (ed), Supernatural Fiction Writers: Fantasy and Horror, pp. 243- 45.
