    The Lord of the Sea.

    First edition, first impression, of a key Shiel mystery in which the world's seaways are ruled by an English farmer. This is the preferred issue with the initial blank extant. The Lord of the Sea was an immediate literary sensation, thanks to its "grandiose sweep of imagination, the vigour and inventiveness of [its] prose, and Shiel's surreal images of obsession, hysteria, and horror" (ODNB).

  6. The Lord of the Sea.
    signed

    The Lord of the Sea.

    With the author's signed presentation inscription to John Gawsworth (real name Flytton Armstrong) on the title page, "F. A. / M. P. Shiel". This is absolutely typical of presentations between these two friends and cohorts in the Realm of Redonda - a much vaunted bohemian collective which in the hard light of day seems little more than an association of like-minded pub crawlers! Re-issue of a book first published in 1901. Learn More
