The Blessing of Pan.London, G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1927 Stock Code: 132841
NotesFirst edition, first impression. Lord Dunsany was "unquestionably one of the most important writers of heroic fantasy of the century; a writer of great originality and charm" (Bleiler). The Blessing of Pan, "one of a great number of modern fantasies that champion paganism against Christianity" is "light and ironic in tone" and describes the gradual and seemingly inevitable fall of a village priest and his parishioners to the worship of the great god Pan (Magill, p. 129; Bleiler).
Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt. With the dust jacket.
Frontispiece by S. H. Sime.
Spine ends a touch rubbed, endpapers lightly browned. An excellent copy in a lightly rubbed and creased jacket with a few minor chips to spine ends, corners and the front panel fore-edge.
