SHIEL, M. P.
The Invisible Voices.
First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, “Harold Taves from M. P. Shiel. Christmas, 1935. ‘L’Abri’, New Rd., Worthing Rd., Horsham, Sussex, England.” Taves was a correspondent of Shiel’s who worked with the poet Edward Doro to sell Shiel’s novels to Hollywood. He later owned a bookstore in Seattle and sold his collection of inscribed Shiel books prior to his death. A beautiful copy of a book that is particularly scarce in the dust jacket.
