The Enchanted Ship: A Story Of Mystery With A Lot Of Imagination., Andom,  R.
1 Andom, R.The Enchanted Ship: A Story Of Mystery With A Lot Of Imagination. 42811
Cassell and Co.: London 1908.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Ghost story set on a pirate ship: illustrated by Louis Gunnis. ''Author's copy'' written in ink on title page (but I have no way of determining if that really is the case). Very uncommon UK hardcover.

''pseudonym of UK writer Alfred Walter Barrett (1869-1920), whose career was exclusively as an author of light fiction designed for the large markets that opened up in the 1890s, and for boys'-fiction journals like Captain Library, Nuggets and Scraps (which he edited); long before his death he had become a figure of the past. We Three and Troddles: A Tale of London Life (1894) and its several sequels - one of which, In Fear of a Throne (1911), is a ruritanian fantasy - display the domesticated, deflating inconsequentiality demanded by its readership, a style only a few writers, like H.G. Wells and (less obviously) F. Anstey, seemed able to subvert or transcend. The title story of The Strange Adventure of Roger Wilkins, and Other Stories (1895) is an identity exchange tale involving Wilkins and his office boy; The Identity Exchange: A Story of Some Odd Transformations (1902; vt The Marvellous Adventures of Me 1903) is similar, though more diffuse. THE ENCHANTED SHIP: A STORY OF MYSTERY WITH A LOT OF IMAGINATION (1908) is a ghost story set on a pirate ship'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).


A fair reading copy only, with page 31/32 detatched (but present).

42 Barreto, LimaThe Origins: Excerpt From Cemetery For The Living (55 numbered copies printed). 42763
Raphus Press: Sao Paulo, Brazil. 2017.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Pictorial wrappers.
Limited to 55 numbered copies. 24 page booklet: between the years of 1919 and 1920, Lima Barreto, a remarkable writer from Rio de Janeiro, was institutionalized by force in the infamous National Hospital of Insane; he faced a serious condition of delirium tremens, and the response to this from the health security authorities at the time was the humiliation that began when the patient was transported through the streets of the city. All these experiences were recorded in a diary, later transformed into the novel Cemitério dos Vivos (a possible translation: ''Cemetery for the Living''), an extraordinary narrative experience that remained incomplete, since the death of the author prevented its conclusion. In fact, the book would only be published in 1956, long after the author's passing. However, excerpts were published in the Brazilian magazines in the 1920s, one of them a compilation of the first chapter, THE ORIGINS, presented in the third and last chapbook of the series ''Golden Age of Clairvoyance''. This extraordinary and rare material is introduced by a piece, an Alcebiades Diniz Miguel original short story, ''Sickness'', on the misery and madness unfortunately very common in Brazilian backlands.

''Raphus Press is a publishing house inspired by the private press from the turn of the nineteenth to the twentieth century, decentered - one axis in Latin America, the other in Europe - whose central focus is the translation of short-form works, little known, outside the usual canon. The translations are accompanied by unusual pieces of fiction as well as galleries of images from the public domain - this material establishes a dialogue with the translated texts, enhancing the impact of these original works on the contemporary reader.
