MCGLOIN, FRANK. - Norodom, King of Cambodia. A romance of the east.

NY, Appleton 1882. Octavo publisher's decorated ochre cloth blocked in black and gilt. A rather nice bright copy. ¶ Only edition of this Asian fantasia, surely an early entrant into modern Cambodian fiction. Lots of warfare, sorcery, demons, and a final great explosion that blasts Norodom and his wicked consort Almeta to the moon means that this should be in the bibliographies of fantastic literature but most seem to have missed it. It's an odd excursion for McGloin whose habitual topics were law and religion in Louisiana.
