The second edition of Lindsay's most famous and influential novel, which CS Lewis called 'shattering, intolerable, and irresistible'. It was first published in 1920, and was, per Gollancz's introduction, 'a plain flop' (p.5) with only 596 copies sold and 834 remaindered. This was the first time it was reprinted, the inaugural novel in Gollancz's series 'The Connoisseur's Library of Strange Fiction', which ran to four titles, half of them by Lindsay.
