About This Item

London: H. Grevel and Co., 1899. First edition. Wraps. Good. Irvine, a Wagner afficionado, held a prominent position among late Victorian followers and critics of the composer and published a number of books on him. Several later works on Wagner and his audience in Victorian Britain cite his works. Sm 8vo. In original jacket with flaps over card covers. pp. 348, + 4, publisher's advertisements. Printed title to spine. The jacket is attached to the spine but folds open from the card covers. Front of jacket has a b&w illustration of a Wagner scene. Rear cover of jacket is detached from spine, although held in place over the board by the flap and is otherwise intact. With wear to cover edges, spine, darkening to the jacket, well used but internally a clean, firm copy and the pages and binding remain secure. SCARCE: only seven copies recorded in UK libraries, and online the only available copy and unusual for the Victorian jacket over card boards.
