The Mythological Travels of a modern Sir Mandeville, being an account of the Magic, Meatballs and Other Monkey Business Peculiar to the Sojourn of Daniel Spoerri Upon the Isle of Symi, Together with Divers Speculations Thereon. Translated out of the French and Introduced by Emmett Williams.
New York: Something Else Press, 1970.
Octavo (21 x 14.5 cm.), xxviii, , 278 pages. FIRST EDITION. An unusual book that is more like three books in one: a study of magic that doesn't work, a gastronomic itinerary of an island where culinary luxuries are nonexistent, and a dissertation on the meatball that wanders off into a long excursion on blood. Some light dusting and fading to silver-printed black cloth, otherwise very good.
