Description

    Fletcher Pratt & L. Sprague de Camp: The Incomplete Enchanter. (New York: Henry Holt & Co., 1941), first edition, 326 pages, gray cloth with purple lettering and decoration on the spine and front board, 8vo (5.75" x 8.25"), dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Deckled fore-edge. Jacket illustration by Boris Artzybasheff. The first volume in the Harold Shea series, and originally published in Unknown Worlds, this book collects the first two stories, "The Roaring Trumpet" and "The Mathematics of Magic." Later authors would continue the Shea series, which now numbers 15 stories of myths and legends in parallel worlds. The copy presented here is in very good condition, with minor edge wear. The textblock is clean, and the binding is tight. The dust jacket is clipped, but the $2.50 price is still present on the front flap. There is minor rubbing on the spine, but overall, this is a really attractive copy of Pratt & de Camp's first collection of Shea stories. From the Ventura Collection.
