Erckmann-Chatrian [Emile and Alexandre]. The Man-Wolf.

London: Ward Lock, [1880’s].

8vo. 252pp. Contemporary blue textured cloth, sunned to spine, titled in gilt to spine, most likely originally issued in cheap wraps. Sharp, clean and strong. A very pretty copy. Brown endpapers, internally clean. A classic and much sought after piece of classic werewolfery, soaked in pure goth, set in the Schwarzewald, witches, windswept forests, curses and a considerable amount of pondering the nature of darkness. Scarce.
