THE PHOENIX AND THE MIRROR

Garden City: Doubleday, 1969. First edition. Hardcover. A curious legend arose during the Dark Ages, as ancient civilizations were crumbling in the shadows of the past, which described the poet Vergil as an all-powerful sorcerer. In time strange tales transformed his life into fantasies of occult secrets and heroic deeds. The world he moved in became a tantalizing place where alchemy and magic held sway; where men walked in fear of troglodytes and manticores; and the Phoenix, reborn, rose up out of the flame. Such is the setting for this rearkable novel. A Doubleday Science Fiction selection. Light vertical stain to gutters due to interaction with the paper and glue, but near fine cream cloth over boards in a nearly fine crisp jacket. Item #14983

Price: $50.00
