Orlando: Harcourt, 2006. Gorey, Edward. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo (imperial). Near Fine / Near Fine. Item #002975
Unpaginated. Illustrated blue cloth boards with matching dust jacket. Some bumping and rubbing to extremities, else fine. Illustrated thoughout, some in colour. This latest collection displays in glorious abundance the offbeat characters and droll humor of Edward Gorey. Figbash is acrobatic, topiaries are tragic, hippopotami are admonitory, and galoshes are remorseful in this celebration of a unique talent that never fails to delight, amuse, and confound. "Amphigorey Again "contains previously uncollected work and two unpublished stories--"The Izzard Book," a quirky riff on the letter "Z ," and "La Malle Saignante," a bilingual homage to early French silent serial movies.
