Bousefield, H.T.W. The God With Four Arms.
London: Arthur Barker, 1939.
First edition. 8vo. Publisher’s blue-green cloth, titled in gilt to spine, a little rubbed and scuffed, with a slight lean, a very good copy. Internally clean, printed on excellent paper stock, with the only defect being a rather incompletely removed review slip to the lower part of the title page. From the library of Richard Dalby, with his index card laid in. A splendid and mostly unknown collection of supernatural and weird stories including “The Unknown Island”, in which an unmapped Greek Island is home to a Gorgon, and “Green Ink” a rather delightful witchcraft story. Scarce, and pretty interesting, he’s no Bessie Kyffin Taylor, but then nobody is; these stories definitely deserve being retrieved from obscurity.
