[Frankfurt a.M.]: Frankfurter Verlagsanstalt, [1953].. Octavo, pp. [1-10] 11-237 [238] [239: blank] [240: ad] [note: first leaf is a blank], original blue cloth, spine panel stamped in light blue and gold. First edition. In 1953 Perutz published what is considered by some his masterpiece: NACHTS UNTER DER STEINEREN BRUCKE, a cycle of wonderfully interconnected stories and legends that conjure up once more the Prague of Rudolf II, the mad Hapsburg Emperor, and the High Rabbi Loew. Perutz paints vividly the life of the time ... [His] novel evokes the medieval mysticism of Prague as no other novel has done." - Franz Rottensteiner, "German-Language Fantasy Since 1900," Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature V, p. 2408. Translated into English by Eric Mosbacher as BY NIGHT UNDER THE STONE BRIDGE (London: Collins Harvill, 1989). A very good copy in good dust jacket with wear, shallow loss and short closed tears at edges. (#152273)

NAKED CAME THE ROBOT

Longyear, Barry B.

[New York]: Popular Library, [1988].. Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. First edition. Popular Library 20755-8. Sinister alien androids intend to take over Earth's mechanical work force and conquer the world. "Daft satire about a world where almost everyone is enlisted for military service or works for the warlike 'Economy.' The protagonist sides with the downtrodden robots. For some reason, he is named after the hero of Stephen Crane's THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE (1895) -- and other literary references abound, overburdening the novel. Too zany to be effective as social satire." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. [249]. A fine copy. (#146316)

  • Quantity available: 1
N.p., n.d.: [1890?]. Octavo, pp. [1-9] 10-56, four illustrations, original light blue wrappers printed in black, sewn. First edition. The July 1889 find in Nampa, Idaho, of a small human figure during a well-drilling operation caused intense scientific controversy during the late nineteenth century. Unmistakably made by human hands, it was found at a depth of 320 feet, which would appear to place its age far before the expected arrival of man in this part of North America. The anonymous author's satire on the find (pages [9]-35 of this booklet) presents a solution to this mystery, a tale of an antediluvian civilization in Idaho and the cataclysmic destruction of its principal city, Megistosthenople, by earthquake or volcanic eruptions. Wrappers chipped at edges, two clear tape reinforcements to spine, a very good copy that is internally clean and fine. Rare. We know of two others, the copy in the Stuart Teitler collection of lost race fiction (now at Ohio State University) and a copy at the University of ... Read more
