Scarce surrealistic novel by the Welsh poet, William Blake scholar and friend of Dylan Thomas, Ruthven Todd.  “Concerned with the adventures of Christopher, a young man precipitated through strange dimensions into a land of unreason, it is packed full of fictional concepts, brilliant fantasy, and provocative ideas. It is also a shocking novel, not in the sense of being sensational, but in presenting certain situations that are so strong, so archetypal that they will remain with you for years. That has been our own experience.” Limited to 1000 copies because of paper shortages during the war. Dust-jacket designed by John Craxton. Illustrations by John Craxton. Dedicated by Todd to Peter Goodall on front-endpaper. Signed by Todd to title page. Condition: Unclipped dust-jacket lightly tanned  with very light wear to corners. Black cloth boards a little rubbed to edges. Peter Goodall’s bookplate to front-pastedown. Some light spotting to prelims, otherwise very good.
