Blake Editions, London - first edition, 1972. Hardcover, 8¾" x 5½", with dust jacket. Jacket is in transparent protective sleeve. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD price-clipped dust jacket. In this, his first novel, Sheridan takes the reader on a fascinating eight-day holiday around the word, with extended visits to China (in 1840s) and Japan (1970s). Meanwhile, from his Earl's Court room, he invesitigates a London cemetery, visits the Chamber of Horrors, attends a lecture on Egyptian burial ceremonies, and interviews an undertaker, and keeps a scrapbook of the bizarre (an appendix to this book). The author is regarded as the finest living translator of French Literature.
