Full Description

8vo. 397 + (1)pp. Publisher’s pictorial wrappers.

This edition is the first to print the first of Beckford’s three “Episodes” from his original English-language text, ignored by previous editors who preferred to print this Episode in Sir Frank Marzial’s translation of its subsequent more decorous French-language version (the Episode in Marzial’s translation is relegated here to an appendix).
