Moon Pool by A.A. Merritt Lost World Novel Very Rare Dust Jacket Version 1930's
- Source: eBay
Very rare book in extremely rare dust jacket. This copy was my "filler" copy for 10 years before I found a better condition copy in this very rare dust jacket. Almost every copy I have come across of this version is from a lending library, as is the case here. Typical markings as such. The book is from a lending library and there was at one time a old demco protector on this that required the jacket to be slightly cut so about 1/4" or so is missing from the top or bottom of the jacket panel. Nonetheless, it shows well. The very creepy jacket art is fantastic. A great read too!
The Moon Pool is a fantasy novel by Abraham Merritt (1884–1943). It originally appeared as two short stories in All-Story Weekly : "The Moon Pool" (1918) and its sequel, "Conquest of the Moon Pool" (1919). These were then reworked into a novel released in 1919. The protagonist, Dr. Goodwin, would later appear in Merritt's second novel The Metal Monster (1920). Although Merritt did not invent the " lost world " novel—he followed in the footsteps of Bulwer-Lytton , Conan Doyle , Burroughs , and others—this work extended the tradition.PLEASE READ TERMS BEFORE BIDDING: Domestic shipping is $4.00.
