The Witch's Head
London Hurst and Blackett 1885 - First edition. Three volumes. 8vo. Publisher's olive green cloth, frayed to spine ends, spines a little discoloured, titled in silver gilt to spine and front board, minor edgewear and scuffing, essentially a very good, set of the author's scarce second novel, of which only 500 copies were printed. Internally clean, dark brown glazed endpapers, inner hinges starting to volumes I and III. Inscribed by Haggard to the half-title of volume I: "To Ella Green, From her affectionate brother, The Author. February 1885." A strong association for a seldom seen title written just prior to King Solomon's Mines and undoubtedly influencing it; the African sequences in Witch's Head being those most singled out for praise by critics. WTPC7 [Attributes: Hard Cover]
