AUBREY, FRANK [IE FRANCIS HENRY ATKINS]. - A Queen of Atlantis. A romance of the Caribbean Sea.
Philadelphia, Lippincott 1900. Octavo publisher's gilt decorated blue cloth (light signs of use); eight plates by D. Murray Smith. A touch of browning at the very beginning; quite a good copy. ¶ First American edition, using the London sheets. Most desirable, all the expected thrills of an Atlantean thriller plus some: flying damsels; immortals; a satisfying variety of monsters including the 'frightful shape, with its maddening leer and its blood-curdling scream' that welcomes us to the book, towering over the insensate maiden in the frontispiece; giant cuttle or devil-fish; even a vampire.AUD 185.00 [Appr.: EURO 131 US$ 141.38 | £UK 114.25 | JP¥ 15712] Book number 9422
