$30.00

With an Introduction by Ben Ray Redman. Illustrated by Mahlon Blaine. Dramatic woodcut illustrations perfectly fit the mood of this famous early Gothic novel that also fed the European fascination with Oriental mythology. Beckford managed to create a tale as outrageous as the rumors that swirled around him all his life. Originally written in French, translated and first published in English in 1786 anonymously. Green cloth. VG condition with only slight wear to cover. The John Day Company, NY. 1928. USED. $30.00
