Notes

Signed limited edition, number 61 of 250 copies, signed by Sime on each plate and by Dunsany on the preface. Only the first edition of 1906 and this 1922 edition contains illustrations by Sime. A close collaborator with Dunsany, Sime illustrated Dunsany's first book The Gods of Pegāna (1905) as well as a number of his later works. Time and the Gods, a series of tales involving the deities in Dunsany's fantasy world of Pegana, the title is derived from Swinburne's poem Hymn to Proserpine,"Time and the Gods are at strife".
Provenance: Doris Louise Benz, morocco book-label; the sale of her library at Christie's New York, 16 November 1984, lot 114.
