Early printing of Cabell’s famed fantasy novel. Octavo, original cloth, top edge red. In very good condition.
Cabell's Jurgen gained notoriety almost immediately following publication in 1919. A humorous romp through a medieval cosmos, including a send-up of Arthurian legend, and excursions to Heaven and Hell as in The Divine Comedy, the work is now widely recognized as a landmark in the creation of the comic fantasy novel, influencing Robert A. Heinlein, Terry Pratchett and many others.
