The Collected Arthur Machen
Includes The Bowmen, Far Off Things and The Hill of Dreams
First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 24 × 16cm, 376pp.
This collection brings together the best and most representative of Machen's writings, from the famous supernatural tale The Bowmen which created the myth of the 'Angels of Mons' and which also first brought Machen popularity, to his two large-scale masterpieces, the autobiographical Far Off Things, with its fictional counterpart, The Hill of Dreams, both reproduced here entire, and a selection of his vivid journalism and criticism.
The book itself is in very good condition, with a little tanning to the page edges. The dustwrapper is sun-faded to the spine but has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
