First Ardizzone illustrated edition. In a Glass Darkly is a collection of five stories by Sheridan Le Fanu, first published in 1872, the year before his death. The stories are presented as selections from the posthumous papers of the occult detective Dr. Martin Hesselius.
8vo., recently finely bound by Bayntun- Riviere in full black morocco lettered in gilt on spine.
This book contains some of Sheridan Le Fanu’s finest tales and is illustrated with numerous line drawings (including a frontispiece plate) by Edward Ardizzone as befits his first formal book illustrations. Ardizzone considered these illustrations to be some of his best work. This book was re-printed from the original three volumes first published in 1872.
