Clean, tight, unmarked; very slight wear to lower back corner of cover; absolute minimal wear; appears unread; The Beetle (1897) tells the story of a fantastical creature, "born of neither god nor man," with supernatural and hypnotic powers, who stalks a British politician through fin de siècle London in search of vengeance for the defilement of a sacred tomb in Egypt. Marsh unfolds a tale of terror, late imperial fears, and the 'return of the repressed," through which the crisis of late imperial Englishness is revealed. This edition includes a critical introduction and a rich selection of historical documents.
